Since it's snowing here - and I want my warm weather back, I am thinking about my herb pots for spring. Only room for 4 small pots this year - what (4) herbs would you plant to use fresh all summer and then dry for winter?

Oops, sorry. I thought this was going to be about another "herb". ;)
If you only can grow 4 plants that might be the way to go ::)

ETA: We grow cilantro and dill.

1. Basil
2. Rosemary
3. Thyme
4. Sage

I think these four are indispensable and very expensive to buy in the store.

Do you go to the botanical gardens plant sale in the spring? They have a quazillion varieties of herbs.

I used to put mine in pots and then I started a little herb garden. I have rosemary, oregano, basil (also do some in pots), thyme, lavender ...... I don't do cilantro anymore because it only lasts for a little while.

My thyme overwintered and is back! I was so happy to see it. ;D

No Jenn I haven't gone there...I don't use much oregano to begin with, so that's probably out. Wish I had room to plant a reg garden, but in a townhouse that's a no go...suppose I could plant sage, cilantro (have marvelous luck with this one - and it seems to last forever if you just cut it off...not too far) basil, rosemary in back, and perhaps the thyme and oregano around the 2 flowers in the front pots? What do you guys think???


Oh - yeah, Jenn, give me some thyme ideas would you?

You should really go to the plant sale! You will be blown away by all the varieties of herb and tomatoes (and other stuff).

Give you thyme ideas? um, stick it in the ground and water it sometimes. Try not to drown it in the floods of summer '06. ;D
