In addition to needed the actual plant, you'll want good potting soil, fertilizer, planters and plant markers to help you keep everything organized. Having your plants marked is handy when they're first starting to sprout since everything looks the same, but may require different treatment.
Lastly, you'll may want to invest in an herb planting advice book. Of course, you can always search the infinite Internet for tips and advice on how to keep your windowsill herb garden thriving.
