Question by KDC: Herb garden in Michigan?
Recently moved into a home with an herb garden (many different ones – rosemary, dill, chives, basil, cilantro, and quite a few more that I am not sure what they are). Not sure how to properly care for it – any suggestions? I cut them all back and put some leaves over the top of it for winter as it was suggested. Do I fertilize in spring? If so- what to use that is safe and nontoxic? Thanks!

Basil and cilantro are annuals, so they’ll be dead soon. Replant in the spring. I have dill, oregano and chives. I don’t mulch, and I fertilize with Miracle Grow in the spring. Zone 5, like you.
