Easy-to-grow perennial herb seeds for dependable harvests
Perennial herbs are easy to grow and rewarding to harvest. Sow the majority of these perennial herb seeds in late spring after your area’s last frost date. Lavender, valerian, and marshmallow seeds can be started in early fall and allowed to overwinter, producing more robust plants.
Perfect perennial herbs for container gardening
Perennial herbs are the perfect candidates for container gardening, especially since you’ll want to keep these herbs nearby, always readily available to use in a recipe.
Plant perennial herbs in well-draining soil in pots large enough to support mature root systems. Containers have the added benefit of controlling more unruly perennial herbs like spearmint and lemon balm.
Pinch perennial herb seedlings back to half their height when the plants get about a foot tall. As counterintuitive as it feels, pinching encourages the plants to branch out, creating a stronger foundation for future harvests.
Perennial herbs will continuously grow all summer and start to die back in fall. To prepare perennial herbs to overwinter, cut woody plants back and mulch the plants to conserve heat and retain moisture.
In colder climates with bitter winters, you might also cover your perennial herbs with frost cloth or a bedsheet during the harshest nights. In hardiness zones 4 and below, you might consider lifting your perennial herbs from the garden and moving them indoors for the winter.
