Thankfully, most herbs require the same type of care. As they continue to grow, your outdoor herbs will require frequent watering, especially the shallow rooted ones which are prone to drying out. Your best bet is to observe the soil and water when it is clear that it has dried out. It is much easier to water your container herbs, a small daily dousing in the absence of rain should do the trick.
If you’ve varied the types of herbs in your garden and staggered them according to maturation time, they should grow pretty continuously until the winter. Cuttings of some herbs – marjoram, oregano and mint – may be taken in late summer to early autumn for next year’s propagation.
Most herbs can survive the winter if placed in a location where they are sheltered from rain and waterlogging. Of course, a simpler solution might be to harvest the herbs in autumn (see below) and store them for use throughout the winter.
