I grew quite a few herbs this year which ones can I take cutting from for next year I have basil, thyme chives Parsley, rosemary oraganio corriander an mint.

You can take cuttings from the thyme and rosemary but only if you want more plants. They're usually long-living and will - or should - survive winter. Ditto oregano and mint.

Chives should also survive with some protection. You can multiply the number of chive plants by dividing the roots.

Coriander should also survive with some protection. Coriander plants have finite lives. You should divide the plants every couple of years to ensure ongoing supplies.

Basil is best grown fresh from seed. Parsley can survive into a second season but I find that it lacks flavour and bolts quickly. I grow new plants every season.
