    Default Identifying 2 herbs, help needed.

    I've got 2 herbs I need identifying help with.
    Could someone tell me what they are please?
    Thank you.

    I added a photo of a chamomile plant as well, is that still something I can save and bring back to life? Or throw it out and sow some new seeds?

    The first looks like thyme, the second like oregano/pot marjoram. Can't help with the chamomile I'm afraid.

    First one looks like Thyme, second one I thought sage. BTW, you have far too many slug pellets down there. You need 1 per six inches maximum.

    Thank you so far

    Rustylady, it's poundland pellets and if i don't shake 'em on the soil like his I will have a million slugs eat all my plants.
    These plants came out of a herbwheel

    Doesn't matter if it's Poundland pellets or other branded ones - you don't need that many. Go on slug patrol - look in nooks and crannies, and go out when it's getting dark. Then pick the little bu@@ers up and drop them into a bucket of salted water.

    You also need to cut all the dead bits off your herbs

    Slug pellets attract the slugs. So the more you put down the more slugs you shall have.
    rustylady and wizzbang like this.

    I only wish the slugs would eat oregano, it's scarcely better than a weed in my garden.
