Love growing herbs on my window sill. Its good to always have access to the :)done it for years also haping to grow salad on there too soon.

No they are too narrow these days unless you are in older home, i do dry seeds there though and that works well !

No, it is a very harsh environment for them with extremes of temperatures. You are better off growing either in a window box outside, or in a tub outside the kitchen door.

Does anyone grow their herbs in the kitchen window sill?

A beautiful morning it has been! Warm, sunny and breezy. Perfect for harvesting the abundance of Melissa (Lemon Balm) in my garden. Harvested, sorted, picked over, cleaned, and hung to dry. I should get at least two harvests this season...woohoo!

Matt, there is nothing to argue about. As with many plants, problems can arise based on the growing conditions and quite possibly on the type of flies that are in the locale and proximity to other plants (along with many other possible variables).  It is just something bear in mind.

It is possible for two opposite experiences to be correct at the same time.

i have several acres of garden/property, so hopefully flies won't be a problem, but will keep on eye out :)
