The Q&A Archives: Best Time To Plant Herbs

Question: I live on Long Island in New York and was wondering when is the best time to planr Herbs?

Answer: Container grown plants can be planted any time the soil is workable, but early spring and early fall are the usually preferred. Plants can be successfully established during the summer if you are careful to keep the soil evenly moist while they become rooted. Bare root plants would only be available in the spring and should be planted upon receipt so they can come out of dormancy with the season.
