I have a two thyme and two rosemary plants growing in a herb bed that I recently created. I transferred them from pots to the bed in March. However I would like to make some room in the bed for more lettuce and carrots and would like to move them and put them into my raised flower bed. Can I move them now or is it too late in the year? If not when would be the best time?

I am new to the forum. Recently I discovered the joys of herb gardening and I would like to learn more about herb gardening in Ireland. I once visited the area around New Market on Fergus near Shannonside and loved it and now would like to hear about your herbs. Specifically how large do rosemary plants grow in your area?

welcome alab, in my last garden (in Dublin) I had a rosemary bush that grew to 5 feet tall and would have grown even taller except that I kept it pruned to that height.

I agree with the above comments, Autumn would be the best time.

Wow! That's impressive. Four and a half years since the previous post.
