Herbs to plant in August
There are quite a few herbs that can be planted in the middle of the summer.
- They need to be sown directly in the soil where they are going to grow because some won't like to be transplanted.
- Of course, you can plant mature herbs, just make sure they are well watered.
- Hardy annuals and biennials can now be sown such as Chamomile, Dill, Coriander and parsley.
- Don't forget if you have space to try and sow different varieties of each for a really good variety.
