RE: Growing

They need a lot of light. If you wait until spring you can put them in a very sunny window. If you want to grow them now, or if you don't have a sunny window, you will need to use very bright lights.

If you want to try growing under lights, there is another forum on this website that might give you better answers about how to do it:

What a lot of people do is buy the cheapest shoplight they can find from a big hardware store (like home depot).

RE: Growing

Growing indoors will be extremely difficult unless you can get 6-8 hours of sunlight and good ventilation. There are more chances of diseases when these are grown indoors. But if you have space for even 1-2 containers outside you can certainly grow them easily. It is best to grow them in summer but you can start seeds indoors about 8 weeks ahead of time or buy transplants from nursery.

RE: Growing

If you have grown them successfully outside, in the garden or IN container, then may consider growing them inside. Then you have to educated yourself about GROWING UNDER LIGHT.

But what you want to do is to germinating and growing seedling to be planted out in the spring, THEN that is another issue.
