I've got s lot of herbs in a big planter, but need to sort them out. Is it best to do this now or in the spring? I'd like to take them out and replant them, after putting some more soil in the planter.

    Can you tell us which herbs snowy?  Lots depends on what you have as many need different conditions and some are annual so won't last the winter anyway.

    I have just picked my sage for drying, ready for Chrismas sage and onion stuffing.

    chopped the parsley down for freezing in ice cubes.

    I like to sort out now, just in case they don't over winter. Depends what you have, I think my Chives just go on all winter, then cut back in Spring ready to go again.

    I have chives, mint, oregano, tarragon, thyme and rosemary.

    I would leave them where they are over winter. Its a bit late to be replanting because they won't have time to establish before the weather turns foul, but come spring you can replant them as the weather warms (we hope) and they will be able to romp away.

    Thank you all for answering. I'll leave them where they are and sort them out in the spring.
