Starting a Fresh Herb Garden

I have wanted to grow herbs for work for some time, (but I do not have garden space) so I got some from the produce company, and set them up in a sunny window. I plan on getting them into bigger containers for maximum growth.

chive, calamint, green basil, Swiss chard (I know, not an herb. but it came with the lot), flat parsley, lemon balm, sorrel, spearmint, opal basil, chocolate mint, lime basil, and curly parsley.
