This means a southern exposure ideally with about eight hours of sunlight a day. Some signs that your herb garden is not receiving enough light will be long stems and leaves (referred to as leggy), and fading leaves or simply leaves that fall off for no other reason. If there is no enough light from a window, growth of herb plants can be supplemented with grow lights.

There are complete setups with pots and overhead lighting available or grow lights can be purchased separately and placed according to directions. An easy alternative is to purchase florescent shop lights, and keep the light suspended within 4 inches above the growing herb plants.
