I have a few tips.

You will get big plants from your Parsley seeds when sown individually. However, not with basil or chives. For your chives sow a real good pinch over the whole surface in that pot - chives grow like grass, single strands so don't spread. As they grow on you can simply divide if you feel it is a little crowd. For your basil sow a little less than the chives. Also, basil do not like the cold - grow on in a greenhouse or a sun trap within your garden.

I completely agree with marsh, I grow chives and basil in the conservatory. Parsley in the garden, but it wasn't good last year.
I am going to try coriander this year as well.
