Q.Storing Herbs For The Winter

Anonymous added on October 20, 2011 | Answered

I recently harvested oregano, sage and basil. Should I throw away the plant stem and soil or can I store them in the garage for the winter? Will they be ok for next year if I water and feed them a little?

If they are in pots, the oregano and sage can make it through the winter in the garage if you remember to water them about once a month. They will look like they are dead, but they will just be dormant. The basil is just best to plant new from seed next year.
