too late to start herbs?
Hi everyone. I'm brand new to this website and brand new to gardening in DC. Posted this on the Herbs forum, but this space is probably more appropriate...
So I just landed a great space (~15'-2.5') in a community garden and am starting my first herb garden outside of Northern Massachusetts. Aie.
Since I only acquired the space last weekend, I haven't started anything indoors and haven't put anything in the ground yet... so, 3 Questions:
1) Is it too late (or too early) to at least pick up some plugs or 4-inchers and stick them in the ground? (My cats destroy anything I put in pots in my solarium.)
2) Where should I go to get them? (Have car, will drive.)
3) What does well in DC? My priority is culinary herbs, but I'm also interested in medicinals, ornamentals, and even wild flowers.
Please advise this anxious yankee!!!
