looking for sage, thyme and western chives..
Posted 19 September 2011 - 10:33 AM
Am new to this Forum and new to herbs, hopefully I can get some advice and help.
I am setting up a rooftop herb garden for my company and hoping to plant the following herbs:
rosemary, chive, sage, thyme, dill and basil.
Currently doing experiments with a few pots before we go full scale ( looking at a total of 100 long planter boxes, if feasible).
I went around the nurseries but could only find rosemary, dill and basil. Bought them, put them next to the window at the office and they are doing well so far.
Not sure how to get the rest though. Tried planting seeds two weeks ago and so far it hasn't germinated yet.
Can somebody advise where I can get chive, sage and thyme ( tried World Farm too, they didn't have) ? Am willing to pay if you have some to spare.
Also, is it ok to put rosemary in the full sun or should some sort of cover be built above it? I have heard from so many people that rosemary only grows only in the cooler weather but it seems many Forummers here are growing rosemary well?
Thanks for your advice.

For rosemary, it takes quite some time b4 you can see any growth from the cutting, as long as the cutting does not die, there's still a chance it will grow.
