Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire Pot up herbs

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden - SCD

The good gar­dener is al­ways think­ing ahead. If you want fresh herbs dur­ing the win­ter, you will need to lift some young plants now, pot them up and bring them in­doors. This will work for peren­ni­als such as mar­jo­ram and chives. Early in the morn­ing or at dusk, care­fully lift a tuft of healthy young growth and work it into a pot with some fresh com­post. Make sure no roots are turned back up­wards. Trim the leaves back as they will wilt and new ones will form in their place. Keep the plant shaded for a week, then bring it in­doors.
