I have tried several times to start an herb garden but have failed...

the weeds take over before the plants are well started... and I have trouble figuring out what are keepers and what are not.

the chickens have gotten into it while they are still seedlings (that has been solved)

the herbs I started inside have not been strong enough to transplant (poor inside lighting?

so what are good herbs to start with?
Is there a good planting plan available on the net?
can I cover the ground in plastic and then cut away where there will be a plant put in? then plastic covered with wood chips?(my husband is resistant to this suggestion)

I will be using part of a meadow for the herb garden, so the existing weedseeds are prolific

What has worked for you?
