Protecting herbs outdoors

hi, I ve sown sage and thyme in the ground, next to wall, using cuttings. Is there any way to protect them from gusty winds till they get strong roots. I do not have indoor space nor do I have green house. 
Thanks in advance.

    I don't think wind will trouble your herbs at all.
    So long as they're in a sunny position and in free draining soil they'll be fine over winter.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I've never protected any of mine and they get plenty of exposure.
    Sage and thyme often die off here because of the general climate and I grow in pots because of conditions, but they don't die because of wind - it's cold/wet which they don't like long term  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
