Growing Basil, Oregano and Chives from Seeds Indoors

Do you have seeds of dwarf basil, oregano, chives that can be grown indoors under lights/or in a window box?

We have several varieties of dwarf basil seed available. Some examples are Medinette, Compatto FT, Gecofure, bush, Greek bush, purple bush, spicy globe, green globe and Pistou basil.

The most compact oreganos are: Hopley’s purple, Kent Beauty(trailing), Zorba red and Zorba white oreganos.

Chives can all be grown indoors, but must be given about a month of frost in winter to stop them from petering out. Put them out of doors in the fall and take back in mid-December before it gets really cold in January and February.
