Herb Bed Winter Protection Notes

In the herb patch I have managed to get the following in this year:

Chives *

Chamomile &

Thyme $

Borage %

Oregano $

Chicory %

Lemon Balm %

Sage $

Tarragon %

Curry Plant $

Chocolate Peppermint *

Lamb’s Mint *

Bay &

Rosemary *

Of these, the ones with a *, I shouldn’t need to worry about protecting over winter.

Ones with a $ I need to cut the dead stuff out of, not that there is likely to be much given that it’s a first year.

Ones with a & I need to wrap in fleece or bubble wrap.

Ones with a % need a mulch of some sort (straw etc) around the base area (they could all probably benefit from this though anyway)

Well that’s what I’ll try any way and I’ll see how it goes.
