Sometimes you just can't expose your plants to enough sunlight, like if you live in an apartment and you don't have a backyard. But that's not a problem, because there are some beautiful plants that grow in the shade, so you can plant them in your apartment or any shady spot of your backyard.
Number 5 on @WesternGardens3 list of Dos and Don't for Planting Herbs is finding a pot that has enough room for excess water to drain. Southern Patio's line of Resin Newbury Planters range in size from 6" - 20" and include drain holes in the bottom. The poly-resin construction of the Newbury planter series provides a sturdy product that is also light weight and UV protected. http://www.southernpatio.com/products/newbury/ns1208bk-12-newbury-self-watering-poly-planter-black/
