I love using fresh herbs and this summer I tried my hand at growing a few on my deck. Despite the November cold, my parsley is thriving (but you know, of all the herbs to thrive, parsley ranks low on the list). However, I've given some thought to indoor herb gardening this winter. Have any of you done that before? Would a sunny window work?
I briefly had a jade plant in the house but it got infested with buggies. Have you had troubles with bugs (I'm assuming aphids)? Currently my only houseplant is a splendid bamboo plant that sits in my kitchen.
Any tips, suggestions, cautions would be appreciate concerning indoor herbs. Thanks!

Keep them in a sunny window, and let them get a bit dry between waterings. The little bugs may be whiteflies. Depending on the herb, it may like a cooler spot or a warmer one. I dug up rosemary, lavender, and thyme to keep in a big pot over the winter. They are near a very cool patio door. A little basil plant in a broken teacup sits in my warmer kitchen window. All are happy so far...

I wish you luck with your plant friends!
