Chatham County has a long growing season with three distinct seasons:  spring and fall are considered the cool seasons while summer is the warm season. The warm season lasts from the last frost date of April 15-30 to the first frost date of October 15-30.

Herbs are either perennials that survive for many years, warm season annuals that grow during the summer, or cool season annuals that grow in spring and fall.

Most herbs can be started from seeds or purchased as young plants. Most herbs can be planted in containers such as clay pots, in raised bed gardens, or in vegetable gardens or landscape beds.
