6 tips for strating a windowsill garden:-
 
1-locate your brightest window and add a set of grow lights, if needed.

2-make a flat plan
Whether you use flowerpots, a seed-starting box or repurposed grocery-store containers, make sure there are holes in the bottom for drainage and a liner underneath to catch excess water.

3-Get Dirty

Fill your chosen receptacle three quarters of the way with organic potting soil. Sprinkle a handful of seeds on top and cover with a light patting of earth.

4-Get Dirty

5. Trim Regularly

To ensure a long yield and maximum bushiness, give greens a regular haircut even when you're not cooking with them. You can dry and store excess herbs for later use.

You don’t need a long window box to create a stunning display. A row of individual vases and pots can make a big style statement. Plant them with the same flowers in different colors and place them equidistant to each other to pull the look together. Try to stick to uneven numbers when grouping objects.

That way you always have an object in the center. It adds balance to the left and right. !!!!! vs !!!!

Just my :2cents:
