Time to plant herb plants out?

Posted Mar 23 2010 10:13am
We have had a question to see if it is a safe time to plant some small herbs outside.

Hello
I live in the Netherlands and since I don’t speak fluent dutch, you helped me out last year with growing potatoes….. This year I have got small plants of rosemarie, sage and parsley (all grown indoors in pots to date and are about 5cm high).  We have just come into spring and it is about 13°C (average);  is the time right to set the plants outdoors?

We remember from last year that this grower lives in an urban environment, so know that it will be quite sheltered and protected from winds.

This was our reply:

Hello
I think your plants will be OK to plant outside – but cover them in the evening if you expect a frost, because they will be a little bit tender after being inside.  Watch them at first, but they should be fine after 3 or 4 weeks.
Good luck!
