Cool-Season Herb Container
I recently re-planted my herb container for the cool-season.
Last spring, I planted my container with rosemary, green basil, purple basil, sage, thyme and oregano. All of these herbs do well in the warm-season and I enjoyed being able to step outside the kitchen with cut fresh herbs whenever I needed them.
You can read the post here, to see how to grow herbs in containers.I also did a “How-To” video about this too 🙂
Okay, so now that cooler weather is on its way, I wanted to add some different herbs that would do well through the winter in my zone 9 garden.
I planted Dill, Garlic, Lavender, Parsley, another Thyme and kept the Sage the I had originally planted.
My kids added some of their Petunias that their grandma bought them in the container too, which will add some nice color.
Other herbs that can handle cooler weather in USDA zones 9 and above are Cilantro, Chives, Fennel, Lemon Grass and Rosemary.
I highly recommend planting your own herb container. It is very easy and so fun to be able to harvest your own herbs!
Very nice! I don't know how long those would survive in my zone 7. I've planted a cool-season veggie garden, and I've had some cilantro seed itself and come up, so we'll see how long it lasts!
I've been doing basil for years on the patio but I should branch out more, I guess. It is fun to go pick it and be able to throw it into dinner.
