For gardeners who have attempted and possibly failed at planting herbs in the spring or summer, you might have already figured out that planting herbs in the autumn is usually best for many herbaceous plants. Especially for herbaceous plants grown from bulbs, planting them in the autumn gives them a opportunity to make roots and they’ll be ready for harvest in the spring.


Da Kräuter fast immer sehr empfindliche Gewächse sind, ist das Pflanzen von Kräutern im Herbst aufgrund des kühlen Wetters am besten. Die unangenehm feuchten Bedingungen, die in vielen Regionen der Nation während des Sommers herrschen, bedeuten, dass Kräuter eine harte Zeit haben werden, um zu starten, geschweige denn zu überleben.

Needless to say, planting herbs in the autumn isn’t right for all climate, rather than for all herbs. In some places, it’s usually cool enough throughout the spring and summer months to grow herbs and might be too cool in the fast approaching cold weather of the fall months.

In other places, planting herbs in the autumn works nicely because herbs need a great deal of sun, but do not require the humidity which goes along with the sunshine. There’s a fine balance between too little and too much sun for all these delicate plants, that usually need about five to six hours of sunshine every day. Keep in mind that there are a couple of herbs that enjoy the colour, such as mint and parsley, but nearly all herbs favor at least a couple of hours of sunlight every day.

Das Beste an der Anpflanzung von Kräutern im Herbst ist, dass Kräuter einfach in Töpfe gepflanzt werden können, für den Fall, dass das Wetter kühl wird. Auf diese Weise können die Kräuter in ein Gewächshaus oder nach drinnen gebracht werden, wo sie unter Wachstumslampen oder einfach an einem sonnigen Fenster überwintern können.

It really is best to start out small herb plants or herbs from seeds in little pots in the autumn and move them to the floor in the spring, if at all. Since they’re so delicate, putting them right in the floor may mean not getting great results. Remember there are a number of herbs which come in the shape of perennial bulbs, such as garlic, fennel, saffron, and shallots, but the remainder are in the kind of seeds or plants. Herb perennial bulbs should be placed in the floor as the autumn weather approaches, but at least 6-8 months prior to a freeze, this way they have enough time to establish roots before becoming dormant.


There are both annual and perennial herbs in addition to biennial herbs. Popular annual herbs include basil, borage, coriander, chamomile, and rosemary. Popular perennials and biennials include parsley, sage, and mint. Most herbs are annuals and also the purpose of planting herbs in the autumn is to give them a opportunity to become rooted and be ready for a whole season in the early spring and summertime. That means you’ll be harvesting these annuals in the middle of the summer once the heat of the summer is helpful in helping dry herbs for storage.
