Plant Cool-Season Herbs
Prepare for flavorful herbs in your garden while it’s still cold outside. We recommend planting cilantro, parsley, and chives.
Planting TipsTransplants of cilantro, parsley, and chives are at their best in late winter months, both in containers and in the garden. Plant them in a shallow box, as pictured, and use them as an outdoor centerpiece.
Keep these tips in mind:
- When planting in containers, be sure to use a lightweight potting soil. Containers must also have good drainage. Water before plants wilt, which can mean daily for small containers.
- These herbs require three to four hours of direct morning sun and consistent moisture. Filtered light in the afternoon prolongs their life and flavor.
