    If its in the ground
    It must be sound
    If its a pot,
    Its probably not.

    I'd go so far to say that it's a pretty useful rhyme!

    Scented pelargoniums, African Blue Basil, lemon grass, Aloe Vera and Tagetes Lucida in the house, Myrtles, most of the Prostantheras, Lemon verbena and Cedronella (all in pots) in the GH, rest outside.

    You're easily convinced, Sarriss
    How about

    Herbs in December
    Where leaves are seen,
    Are not deciduous
    But evergreen.

    Thanks guys n gals.
    I will see how they fare.
    I have lavender, sages, rosemary and French tarragon. Chamomile and curry plant, chives and thymes....guess if it gets really frosty I will cover them up.
    Interesting to read what you all do.

    Unless the lavenders or thyme are tender varieties, they should all be fine, even in pots, although French tarragon is a little more tender.

    We had a slight frost this morning (about 2c) and everything was still out. I brought my lemon grass in tonight. Will do the rest at the weekend.
