This is the first year I have ever grown herbs...we live in central Missouri just to give you an idea of general weather conditions. They were doing great til it started getting colder I brought all my herbs in...we do not have a garden as of yet...they are all in large plastic pots. I am aware that both Rosemary and Sage prefer terra cotta pots and have yet to do that...not sure if I should wait til spring. Eventually I would like to plant them outside.
I do not have alot of windows that provide alot of light. So the sage is dying and the rosemary is starting to it seems. I have them where the sun comes in the window from the South but that is only 1 window and it doesnt provide sun for very long each day. I have been watering them only once a week.My hope was since it was winter not alot of sun etc and they were brought in that they might go into a kind of dormant stage then in spring when I put them out hopefully they would flourish again.
Questions are...how do I keep this alive...what kind of soil mixtures do you find useful...fertilization etc....I am a complete novice so all practical advice would be useful. Should I move them outside during days where it is warmer and sunny...meaning in the 50s or would moving in and out be more traumatic for them?
Thanks a bunch all
