HAVE: Culinary herbs

Betz11(8 UT)September 28, 2005

Help. These plants are outgrowing their 2" pots and I do not want to have to start another garden for them. I started these from seed in the spring.

I have:

English Thyme


Tuscan Blue Rosemary (from cuttings)


Broad leaf sage

Please help me out.

What kind of help would you like? I am an herb-junkie. We are blessed with about nine months of summer here--just got a sunburn in the garden yesterday. Who knows how much longer summer will be around!

I guess I worded it wrong. These plants need to be adopted. I would like to trade them for possibly perennials. Or, some other kinds of herbs. Or, whatever.

I just have too, too many of them.

Hi Betz, me and my daughter ,4 kitties too, have been trying to get more herbs after relocating to Houston (due to Katrina and Rita)and bought 3 kinds of basil, but with the weather turning colder we thought of buying some largest herb plants (wish we did when we went to the herb society's sale) and drying them, especially basil, oregano and rosemary, love using them in cooking.
So if you haven't thought about drying your herbs, wondering if you'd consider doing it, I'd love to trade seeds for dried herbs, if you are interested plmk?

Hi GB,

Actually none of my herb plants are large enough to start harvesting. They
should be next summer. If you are interested in buying dry herbs, The San
Francisco Herb company sells pound packages that are really cheap. Check
them out on the internet.

Nice to hear from you. I am originally from Houston.

Hi Molly,

Yes, my sage is perennial, and I have 2 kinds. What I do is take the plants out of the pots, wash the dirt off, wrap the roots in damp paper towel and then in plastic wrap. I send them priorty mail.

What is Confederate Rose? Please do not send me horehound seed or plants. It grows wild here and I fight it constantly. I could use any kind of basil or dill seed. I could probably use some of the cockscome, too.

Please email me direct or unlock you email address so we can communicate one on one.
