Welcome, MBuff. No worry about planting different herbs near each other in terms of flavor. Just important to give each one what they need (usually lots of sun). A few, like mint, are not good neighbors and run all over the place, so they need their own spot away from everyone else. Some are annual, like cilantro, and will quickly pass their prime and go to seed, so re-sow a small amount every 10 days or 2 weeks for a continuous supply. Others are biennial, like parsley, and are good for picking the first year, but even though they will survive the winter will quickly give up after that. Sage is like a little shrub, a woody perennial, so different as well. So I guess what I am saying with these few examples is it’s good to read up a little on the specific herbs you want to grow to know what to expect, how much room to give them and whether they will be permanent or temporary members of the garden. The Herb Society of America has some great plant profiles in their information section, and general good advice if you want to read on: http://herbsociety.org/profile.php. Margaret
