Nice idea BUT, 

I have one terminally ill apple tree Topbird. There were 2 here when we arrived, long neglected. It has an appointment with the chainsaw this winter.

Just forget plastic and all will be well Alan

If you want to keep them in a plastic food container make sure they're totally dry first and get some of those crystals for drying things out, I can't remember what they're called but you'll know what I mean

How do I keep my indoor herbs alive?

Are these supermarket herbs from the veg counter?

They will never have been exposed to the real world. They're designed to be bought and used.

If I want to grow any  on I either leave them in the plastic bags to support them till they get some strength in the stems or cut them back, use the tops and leave the rest to grow again.

Except the basil, cutting that always seems to be the end. It is only an annual.

I'd keep them outside (potted if you like) and let them die back in their own time. Then leave them alone till they leaf up again next season

Evergreens do drop a certain amount of leaves at times.

If the growing tips are green and healthy you're OK, if they're yellow,
