Welcome to NGA, @romiegrace60 .

Many herbs can be grown indoors if they have sufficient light... a good plant light is the most consistent form of lighting, but you can also get pretty good results with a sunny windowsill. I've had better luck in terms of growing herbs indoors when I've started with plants, rather than starting from seed.

It would probably be helpful if we knew where you are located, and what types of plants you are actually interested in growing.

Happy gardening! Smiling

I've had chives in my kitchen window facing south. They grew very well. I've also had green onions, basil, cilantro and a tiny rosemary plant.

You don't say where "here" is, but as long as they are warm and in sun they will grow. Mine are blooming in a pot outdoors.
