I rent an apartment with a small yard. When we moved in, there were several herbs (lemon thyme, oregano) planted in a small "garden" area that is set off from the lawn with pieces of wood.
This patch is right next to the building, and fewer than 5 feet from our heating oil intake pipes. I don't know if the wood is pressure treated or not.
Last weekend, I got a lovage plant and some lemon balm from Red Wagon Plants
in Hinesburg. I'm not sure whether it's safe to plant them near the other herbs, or if I should create a container garden. Any thoughts?
Also, is it safe to eat the lemon thyme and oregano? Should I transplant them or just get new ones?
