Hi guys, was wondering what the best herbs are for withstanding the upcoming colder months. I'm based in Melbourne, VIC and was hoping to plant some herbs in the garden this weekend. The weather is already fresh and rainy so I was wondering what herbs should survive the winter months or what sort of protection would help - thanks!

You can plant parsley, chives, mint, thyme, sage and garlic. You could also try corriander, although it's a little harder.
Sorry @aly, basil only grows from spring through to autumn. You'll need to wait for the warmer weather.
Would love some tips on keeping corriander alive. I just lost another one...
Anyone have any luck with it in Melbourne? Latest was just a pot on the deck.
My Youngest Son Lives in Melbourne i live in Gosford NSW but don't let that fool you we get much colder weather than
Sydney frosts a lot and even Ice on our windscreens Mid to late winter. Your Best Bet is to protect the herbs by Creating
a mini Cheap Greenhouse out of stakes and Plastic but let some air in protects from icy cold winds and when the suns out
with enough water Mini Greehouse Effect.
Cheers hope this works for you
