    Default Herb-aholics ... Please help :)

    I'm buying a herb garden tomorrow (the outside box part). I've got an amazing ability to kill any plant I touch. But I really want to try. So it will be in my garden that catches both sun and shade . Please help me choose the herbs etc. to plant that have a chance of survival.

    Rosemary is hard to kill. Well it survives in my garden and I am no green thumb.

    We've got chives, rosemary, parsley, basil, oregano and mint. All grow really well with minimum looking after. Just give them a nice drink and use good quality compost. I think herbs in general are pretty low maintenance. I'd plant what you are going to use when you cook.
    With the mint, put it in a pot of its own otherwise it will strangle whatever is in there with it.
    I wouldn't plant until spring though.

    Where do you live? Is it cold? My herbs from last spring are still going strong except the basil and it does get cold here at night. Just not sure how new seedlings would go in the cold.

    It's not super cold. Maybe I should just wait. Thanks for that. It didn't even cross my mind!!
