•    Ensure that your tender plug plants are grown on in 10cm pots in fresh compost and placed in a warm spot, ideally a windowsill or propagator.  
•    These herbs do not like the cold during their initial growth period, so fluctuations in temperatures are best avoided.
•    Once the roots have filled the pots, they will benefit from being potted on to a larger pot for a few more weeks or if you have a frost free spot in the garden they can be planted out.  
•    A neutral, well-drained soil is ideal that is not too high in nutrients.
•    Water in well initially and snip the herbs with a pair of scissors as you need them.
•    Mulch the base of the plants in late autumn to give them protection from the harshest cold weather and they may grow back next year.
