Q.Light Requirements for Herbs

Anonymous added on May 3, 2011 | Answered

I would like to plant a small herb garden – basil, thyme and rosemary mostly- and need to know how much light these plants require. The area I have picked gets a lot of shade/indirect light and currently ferns and hostas are doing very well there.
