Herbs will grow indoors, too. They will not be as large or bushy as grown outdoors. Indoor herbs provide nice fragrance and make it easy to access for cooking.
Indoors, the plants will not get nearly as much sunlight as outdoors. The herbs that can grow in this lower light level:
Plant in pots at least 6" diameter and put in a sunny window. The above herbs will grow in containers either indoors or outdoors.
Most you can grow from seed or buy a transplant from a nursery or big box store. For seed starting, Indoor seed starting tips
Herbs don't need a lot of fertilizer. I would apply a liquid fertilizer about once a month when you water. The number one cause of indoor plant death is overwatering! Let the soil dry out between waterings.
I actually got started in edible gardening by growing herbs indoors during the winter. In the spring, I went ahead and planted them out in the garden. Most herbs are perennials so once planted in the garden, come back every year.
You can also bring your herbs from outdoors in the fall to have herbs in the kitchen all winter. I overwinter my tender perennials like bay, lemon grass, moringa, celery and Chipetin pepper in the garage with great success every year.
