Looking ahead to the winter months, it's nice to think about reaping a small harvest year-round. Have you ever tried growing herbs indoors to add to your winter soups and stews? If so, what herbs have you succeeded in growing indoors and what tips do you have for keeping the plants healthy?

I love to plant basil in the house for winter. Had a house plant die through some basil seed in the pot was a nice surprise to have in my bathroom. Smells so nice and when it did go to bloom the little flowers were a plus.

Please God remember me.

I have had great success with chives and oregano, both of which are fairly compact so can be grown in smaller containers. Like any other "house plant" they need fertilized every few weeks with a simple liquid fertilizer and they must stay damp, not sopping wet or bone dry. We especially love the chives because the flowers are edible and look pretty on top of potato salad!

I'm always trying to grow some and others seem to flourish. My rosemary just gets taller but oregano is a no go. I bring some in every fall, even having it in a pot all summer. Bring it in and within a month it is full of aphids and dead. Thankfully the aphids don't jump to other plants. I also have tried sage and the best I can get is one about 4 inches tall until I put it out in spring.
Now basil is another story - it won't grow at all! I have tried all the tips that people give me but all I get is either one that doesn't grow or one that sprouts up to a foot and goes immediately to seed. Even cutting those down just gets them putting more sprouts up. Thus, I leave the basil to my son who gives me all I can use.
I'm getting a greenhouse this year so am hoping I can nurse some of these herbs for longer periods in the year.
