Herbs for Winter Sowing

trudi_dJanuary 1, 2013


This is a list of plant suggestions for an herb garden. As I do more research I will add names to it as I find them, so do check the list frequently for new additions.

Plant zones are SUGGESTED, in your garden a plant may be less or more hardy so it important that you research all herbs before growing them to understand their individual needs, and to see if your garden suits them and that they will thrive in your planting zone.

In general most herbs will grow well in poor soil. Fertilize with a just shovelful of compost as a top-dressing during Spring and Autumn. Water established plants only during excessive drought.
