These herb plants are perennials, meaning they live for several years. They will survive outside all year round. Most of them will die down underground for the winter months and then reappear the following spring. They can be planted in the garden and in pots in a place that receives at least half a day of direct sunshine.
Growing in pots
Herbs grown in pots will need a general-purpose liquid feed once a week as they have no access to minerals unlike their garden grown counterparts. Mint is better grown in a pot on its own otherwise its prolific roots will take over the whole pot and eventually kill the other herbs. All the others can be varieties can grow together happily and of these rosemary, as an evergreen perennial, will be the slowest grower so be patient.
It is better to pot herbs on into pots that are about four centimetres bigger than the ones they arrive in, then wait for them to root into the new compost before potting on again. This keeps the root ball warmer meaning the roots will grow more quickly and stops them being surrounded by lots of wet compost that can potentially cause them to rot. This is especially important in spring and autumn when plants are growing more slowly.
