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.
