Though some indoor plants can be fickle, we trust herbs to make it with just a little tender love and care. Some of the best herbs for growing indoors include basil, parsley, sage, thyme, oregano, rosemary and mint. Indoor gardening is a popular hobby these days for a reason: who doesn’t want fresh herbs on hand for dinner recipes and cocktails?
