Herb and bulb question….
I just realized that I planted all these herbs, and I have no idea when to harvest them. =-} I'm growing cilantro, oregano, chamomile, dill, rosemary, basil, sacred basil, and two different kinds of mint. I started them all from seed... The chamomile has flowered and those flower have gone away, and the cilantro is just starting to flower. Everything else is just big n' leafy. Do I need to let them all flower first? Do I have to wait for a certain maturity before I harvest them? What the best way to preserve the flavor after harvesting? I want to use the mint, chamomile, and sacred basil for tea. Then, I want to use the cilantro, oregano, dill, rosemary, and basil for seasoning food. I have paperwhites and daffodils that I grow from bulbs in a pot. I know I need to dig them up every year or two and separate them, but do I feed them once a month like all the other plants over the spring/ summer?
