Some of the herbs in my garden are flowering. Should I cut them back before they go to seed?

Yes, cut your herbs back - preferrably before they begin to flower. Cut the flowering stems off now and monitor them closely. If they begin to send up flowering stems, be sure to cut them back. Once an annual herb flowers it usually dies out. Best wishes with your herbs.
