Transplanting established herbs

Posted by nancyjane_gardener USDA 8ish (My Page) on

I have several herbs (oregano, lemon verbena ,thyme, sage, tarragon) crowded into one small raised bed.
I have a much larger area I can plant them in now. Will these TP well?
Also, do gophers like these?

RE: Transplanting established herbs

Who can say with "gophers?" They'll even chew (or try to chew) on tomato plants - not the most palatable or non-toxic.

Spring or fall when it is moister and cooler is the time I try to do most of my transplanting but you can always try now. Give them a little TLC just until the plants are good and set - but not too much TLC since many an herb has been killed by "kindness."

Oregano is virtually non-killable and would probably not be affected much by the transplanting. You can start with that one, if you wish.
