Waiting to Plant a Spring Garden

When the winter weather is unrelenting like it is here, hope that you have herbs in containers to keep you sane! I was very hopeful several weeks ago that we were on the way to spring a little early. Not to be! I will be happy to see any sign of the herb garden before spring arrives in five weeks or so. Hopefully, the snow will have acted as an insulator and kept plants intact.

My herb garden in February, 2010.

Some of our herbs are on the windowsills that have southern exposure like this lemon verbena and scented geranium.

A couple of 'Logee's Snowflake' and wooly mint-scented geraniums are doing fine in the basement with little light.
