Winter arrival doesn’t mean you have to give up gardening. You can move your herbs inside and continue using fresh culinary spices all winter with a few hints. In some cases, it’s sufficient to use a cloche or cold frame with glass. In some areas of deep cold, you’ll want to transplant herbs into containers and move them inside, either a sunny porch area or a covered greenhouse. Herbs tend to be somewhat hardy so keeping fresh seasonings year round is simple with a little planning.
- Even when temperatures drop, there are herbs that gardeners can cultivate for use in the kitchen.
- Herbs can be protected from winter weather by covering them, which can help preserve any heat in the soil so they don’t freeze.
- Growing your winter herb collection can be done from pots in a greenhouse, or even on an inside window sill.
