Herbs in Winter

World traveler, herbal expert and self-professed foodie Mark Ragland provides techniques and tips for harvesting, preserving/drying and overwintering herbs in your garden for winter. Mark discusses herbs like Rosemary, sage, basil, lavender, chives, dill, parsley, thyme, scented geraniums, bay, fennel, tarragon, oregano and more. You’ll also learn how to maintain your supply of fresh herbs through the cold months by growing herbs on your windowsill.
