Bringing herbs inside
If you waited this long to bring in some basil, you are in trouble.
But it isn't too late to repot some heartier herbs and bring them inside so you can enjoy them during the winter months.
The blogger behind North Country Maturing Gardener, who lives and gardens in New Hampshire, offers this advice:
Dig up a few healthy looking sections from the garden and rinse off the leaves AND the roots, to make sure you aren't bringing anything indoors you don't want.
Repot the herbs in a clean pot in a soil-less planting medium, such as vermiculite. Whatever you do, don't use soil from the garden.
Keep the "soil" damp but not soaking and put the herbs it in a sunny window.
