What herbs do you need to leave a bit at the bottom when cutting them?

Asked by MyNewtBoobs (19044points) June 23rd, 2011

I know with basil, you have to leave a few leaves at the bottom of each stalk when you cut it, otherwise it won’t grow leaves anymore. But what other herbs need that same cutting treatment, and which ones can I feel free to hack away at?

You can pretty much hack chives (cut them like hair).

I always leave some leaves on thyme and rosemary and oregano and parsley.
