- Herbs like full sun as well as lightweight, well draining soil. The soil should retain moisture and be high in organic matter
- Annual and biennial herbs like basil, coriander, dill and parsley can be sown in the spring, and then throughout the season with intervals of three weeks up until August.
- The cuttings of shrubby herbs like hyssop, sage, rosemary, and thyme should be taken in late spring
- Hardy herbs should be divided like oregano, mint, marjoram, and thyme in spring or in late summer after flowering
- In the cold months, sow basil in a sunny windowsill or greenhouse. However, basil can be sown directly into the garden soil after May. Once the seeds have germinated more basil can sown to maintain supply
- Take semi-ripe cuttings when it is late summer or the beginning of August
- dividing the suckers in spring is also possible
- Seeds should be sown in early autumn or spring in pots or in the garden soil
- Once the soil is 10°C, sow the seeds outside in early to late spring
- When bottom heat of the propagator reaches 18°C of the propagator , sow 10-15 seeds per 3cm module
- the bulb clumps can be divided in spring or fall
- Sow directly into the soil garden in the spring. Once germinated, more can be sown
- Place in poor outdoor soil, but not deep into the soil. The seedlings should be planted at 20cm apart. If sowed repeated every three weeks yields a constant amount of the herb
- should be divided in spring
- the seeds should be sown lightly on the surface of compost in the spring
- softwood cuttings should be taken in the summer
- Softwood cuttings are to be taken in summer
- They should be divided in the spring
- The runners should be planted 5 cm (2 inches) deep and 6-9 inches apart
- Seeds should be sown when the bottom heat of the propagator (what it is growing in) reaches 18°C, or when it is late spring.
- The seeds should be sown 1/4 inch deep in a rich soil.
- Parsley germinates slowly and the seed used should be fresh.
- if planted again during the late spring and late summer, a healthy supply can be made possible
- Semi-ripe cuttings should be taken in late summer
- softwood cuttings can be taken in early summer (6 inches)
- The seeds can be sown win spring and then covered with perlite. A bottom heat of 15°C is helpful
- It is difficult to propagate tarragon with softwood cuttings during the summer.
- Root cuttings can be used in the spring after the frost has stopped
- Mature plants should be divided every two to three years
- Softwood cuttings should be taken in late spring or summer at 2-3 inches
- In mid spring the seeds can be sown indoors
- Because thyme has a tendency to become woody very quickly, it is a good idea to replace the plant every two to three years.
