Lots of things come in indoor/outdoor varieties. Furniture, activities, cats. Herbs, though, don’t seem to.
When we decommissioned our garden back in October, we had the bright idea to put some of the herbs in pots and bring them inside. Parsley all winter!
The parsley had other ideas. It immediately started to yellow. The chives started to wilt. The sage started to brown. I thought they were all having separation anxiety from the outdoors, and they’d recover as soon as they got over the shock to their system. But now, three months later, they’re still struggling.
The parsley, particularly, has begun to act strangely. It is sprouting new growth, but the new leaves are different from the old leaves. Instead of being parsley-shaped, they’re longer and pointier, and they don’t taste nearly as good.
All you gardeners out there, can you help me figure out why my herb garden is such a bust? Is there anything I can do to resuscitate it?
