We put the irrigation system on a timer and generally water about 20 minutes every other day. The mulch will help to conserve the water. You must choose an area that has at least 6 hours of sunlight for most herbs.

if you have seeds vs plants, I would still go ahead and plant them as soon as possible. The herbs I would concentrate on in this season would be basil, thyme and sage. There are some others as well. If you go to a local nursery, chances are the plants they have available at this time are good for planting this time of year.

the first year I would buy mostly young plants instead of seeds. It’s a bit late for sowing yourself and you’ll have the fun to see results soon.
