I was planning to grow some herbs inside through the winter. Are them some herbs that do better indoors then others? Is there any special care that needs to be done inside?

Herbs grown indoors need plenty of bright light or sunlight, either from a south-facing window or a gro-light, and soil that drains very well. (Many herbs are native to the Mediterranean area, so think about recreating those conditions.) Some herbs that normally do well indoors are basil, parsley, and cilantro (all these need slightly more moist soil); and thyme, oregano, and rosemary (these can allow soil to dry out a bit more). Fertilize once a month with a standard houseplant fertilizer. Once the plants are growing vigorously, start harvesting the leaves and pinch back the stems regularly to keep the plants from getting too rangey. Good luck!
