A couple of other suggestions:
1. Start the slow-growing seeds in trays indoors. For parsley, oregano, rosemary, thyme, and other really slow growing seeds, if you direct seed into the garden, you are likely to lose them to weeds or uneven watering. The seeds are so tiny, they are likely to wash away. Plant the seeds very shallowly in trays of seed starting mix. (Don't try garden soil.) Keep the soil warm and moist. Be patient.
2. Be aware that some herbs are annuals, like parsley, dill, and basil, so you have to replant them every year. Rosemary and thyme are perrenials, so you think carefully where you want them . Thyme is low growing, and can make a nice border. Rosemary can grow to 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide. It can make a nice bush-like plant for your garden.
