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

I'd go out there tomorrow and dig one up. Take a pic of the roots and we'll know if you've got a biennial foxglove or a perennial weed

What's happening to my Flox!?

Hi Nik, they do need a good amount of moisture to keep them happy. 

Mildew is a common problem with Phlox. You can spray for mildew but it won't take away the white that's already there. It doesn't kill the plant. I think I'd either cut it back or put up with it but try and prevent it next year. A good mulch and keep them hydrated
