Hi there,

We have a not-very-bright apartment in Brooklyn and we're dying to grow herbs. What kinds of herbs do well in shade indoors?

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, most herbs really prefer sun and since indoor light levels tend to be low, even the shade lovers may suffer lack of light. You might try parsley, basil and chives in the brightest location you have or consider using some supplemental lighting to expand the selection. Good luck with your herbs.
