Try putting an add in you local newsagents window. Such a shame you don't want to use them; making your own compost is very rewarding.

Nice tasting herbs

You could put a plastic trough on an outside window sill, but be sure to have wire going around it attached to eyelets in the wall each side so that it does not fall on anyone. The easiest way then is to simply place pots of herbs in there, either grown from seed or bought from a Plant Nursery or supermarket. With these, you will need to pot them on to bigger pots with the addition of further potting compost.

Parsley is great to freshen the breath after eating garlic. You could easily grow mint, and make mint tea or just munch on a leaf. There are very many different kinds of mint, from pineapple mint to spearmint. Good luck with it
