Re: Herbs

I grow most of mine in containers on the deck for the same easy access. But have creeping thyme out in the perennial bed, where I can frequently continue to cut it into winter, and parsley in the vegetable garden where it also lasts well into winter (until the temps get really low) and being a biennial, I can get some in spring to last me until my new seeds sprout. Then I dig up the old roots (such fun!). My basil was discouraging this year. Very stunted, with coarse leaves. Maybe I picked the wrong variety??

Pam, I have herbs. Winter before last, I lost (2) lg lavenders that I had in
the garden for a number of yrs. I tried the varigated last year & it did not
overwinter. I didn't get it replaced this year. Parsley, chives & mint are
kept near my kitchen door for easy access.
I visited a garden this year that had a long hedge of lavender. I would
have loved to have viewed this when in bloom. It looked like the photos you
see in an English garden.
