Basic Herb Garden
Posted 19 June 2013 - 09:20 PM
Pretty much everything stayed alive in their containers but I did have to bring the sage into the garage during the frosts, they didn't like that at all but I'm pleased they lived. I have purple and tri-colored sage, chives (came back...everywhere, in the grass, the cracks in the pavement! They are in pots, who knew?), oregano, thyme, rosemary, parsley, artichoke and strawberries in containers. As soon as the sun came out, they all started flowering, never got to trim them back. I'm not sure what to do with them now. I can feel that they need to be trimmed back but I'm not sure exactly when/how much to do that as I usually do it before they flower. Any advice?
This year is odd, that we've gone from hail to rain to 90-degree heat back to cold and rain. Got sunshine and rain today. Had the air conditioner on day before yesterday but had to add an extra blanket to the bed last night! Oregon, ya gotta love it.

I planted lavender for the first time this year and it's doing great! I truly love lavender, good to know it keeps away negative spirits, because I seriously do not need anymore negativity around here. I am also going to copycat a picture of a container full of herbs that I found in Crate and Barrel catalogue, been meaning to get to that all spring but never got around to it. This is the week! Happy Planting Y'all. Kera
I am going to plant some lavender in my rock garden and hopefully some rosemary with the issues I'm having these two plants are great at keeping negative spirits away! I am really needing that right now plus lavander is great for smudging and other workings.
