●● Save herbs from frost IF your herbs are still out­side in pots, you will need to give them some pro­tec­tion in the win­ter months, even if our win­ter has been un­sea­son­ably warm.

If you don’t have a green­house, bring them as close to the house as pos­si­ble, un­der the cover of a porch. Wrap the sides of the pot with sev­eral lay­ers of bub­ble wrap poly­thene or hes­sian. Make sure you leave all parts of the leaves un­cov­ered and en­sure that the base of the pot has good drainage.

It’s best to stand the pot on feet to avoid mois­ture re­ten­tion.
