|When can I start my herb garden here in Raleigh, NC? I plan on purchasing seedlings to start my herb garden. Also, during the fall, I transplanted some 3' rosemary plants from last years garden to a place they would have more room to grow. (my herb garden is 6'x 8') Unfortunately, we had one of our worst winters in a while. About half of each plant turned brown and dried out. I have vigorously cut them back this week (from 20-75% depending on the plant). Is there anything I should do to encourage them back to the healthy plants they were? In addition, last year they were in spot too small for them and they grew only in one directions. What is the best way to train them to grow more uniformly?
