They are hardy strong plants and can take having their roots torn and handled when you split them and transplant them into transplant cups. Once they grow in the transplant cups, you can divide them again when they are put into the ground or outdoor containers. One over-seeded starting cell will get you four herb transplant plugs in the end.
Transplanting to Cups:
I start my herbs indoors 10-12 weeks before the would go outside. I live in Maryland Zone 7 and look to plant in March. The above herbs can take light frost and don't mind the cold. You can do this with most perennial herbs.
Good Luck with Your Garden,
