Sage Plants
Q.

In Ohio, can I prune back my Sage, Chives, Oregano and Thyme in late March?

They survived our fairly severe winter this year in Central Ohio, because I see green underneath the woody tops. I did not get them pruned very good last year, Spring nor Fall, because I had a broken ankle and could not get into the beds very easily.

You can remove any dead plant material and trim back your outdoor herb plants if your winter frost period has passed. Here's an article that should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/hgen/general-care-for-your-herb-garden.htm
