Especially thyme and rosemary do not like being exposed to the wind. Some herbs, such as rosemary, also require pruning.
Perennial herbs can be planted in March already. Thyme, rosemary, tarragon and curry plant are resistant to cold nights. For other herbs, it is best to wait until April.
Dill, coriander, sage, basil and rocket are also delicious.
Basil needs a bit of attention: make sure to give it a warm place in the sun.
Herbs like mint and lemon balm can be quite invasive. They should be planted in a bottomless bucket or pot with the edge protruding from the ground by about 5 cm.
