I have an outdoor greenhouseI have an outdoor greenhouse for my herbs, mint, parsley, rosemary and the like. I bulit a small wooden shelving unit inside to hold them over winter but they're just not getting the sun they need and its getting difficult to keep them watered. I am wondering what the best way to keep them over winter. They're in pots, plastic mostly, a few tinfoil containers as well. If I put them in the greenhouse, would they survive over the winter? (I'm in southern ALberta Canada.) If they freeze, will I have to plant new seeds in the spring or will they regrow? I'm new to gardening and don't know anyone local to talk to. Any suggestions would be great. Can I put them in the basement over the winter without watering them and will they go dormant until spring?
