I buy mine from a local nursey but I'm sure most home improvment stores have them also.
I use the long ones that attach to the wall and hang over the plants.
I keep my plants in my garage which may or may not be OK for you, my garage lets a whole lot of light in and since I live in Southern Texas it does not get to cold and has light so like I said were you live may be a huge factor.
I do not advise real tender herbs inside but I grow, mint,catnip,thyme,rosemary,garlic chives,parsley and cilantro inside during the winter, in fact half my garage is a garden.
Thank you so much - I am not looking to grow many, so I think this will work perfectly. I am not sure what the new house looks like (I'm moving blind!) but I am sure I'll find an adequate spot. We have a few wonderful nurseries here, and I'll go there soon.
I do grow them, in a south facing window. I've found that they do better in one large pot, rather than lots of smaller pots. But to be honest, it's never been a huge sucess--still the expense and effort involved is relatively minimal, and if they do grow, the reward--fresh herbs in the middle of winter is well worth.
