The table below shows how and when herbs can be planted in the garden.
Bay is usually planted as a shrub or a tree, from October to April. Bay makes a good feature when planted in containers, but it will live happily in the garden, as long as it is in a sheltered spot, protected from cold winds.
Rosemary and Sage can be planted as seed or cuttings in April.
Parsley,is sown as seed in April or September. The seed takes a long time to germinate. This is speeded up by bruising the seeds or covering the seed row with boiling water.
