I find I have to cut back my mint, oregano, and thyme

periodically, especially if they are in pots, because they become ragged and unruly very quickly. This is an apple mint that is growing back nicely after being cut back. I will stick potted plants anywhere. If I run out of room on the ground I'll go up.

One of two potted Patchouli plants I babied over the winter, cut back, and now are putting on lots of nice new growth.

The leaves smell exactly like you expect them to.

This one looks like it's doing okay after the winter and should really take off once the weather warms up. The pots of chocolate mint and spearmint still look a little scraggly but they will come along also.

These definitely need trimming again! There's only so much Thai food that I can make!

Not the greatest photo, with that intense sunlight today! But that keeps these plants growing all winter.
