    Mint!

    As much as I like other herbs, such as rosemary, basil, thyme, etc. my favorite is mint. Yes, I know it has a vicious habit of taking over herb gardens, but I can't bring myself to mind too much. Mint tea is my favorite and I have wonderful memories of going outside to...

    Every Year

    When I was courting my sweetie, many years ago, she had bought flowers to plant outside and lots of herbs.  I wanted to spend time with her so I came over to her place to help her plant flowers.  It took all day (actually two days, it was over a weekend).  I never planted so...

    No, I can't grow anything! I've tried and tried, but I only kill things. I would love to grow an herb garden. I use herbs for all sorts of things including their medicinal and magickal properties. I am great at drying them, but I really wish I could grow them too.

    when I had a garden but now I live in an Upstairs flat and all I can do is to have a few herbs on the window sill. Herbs are essential for good cooking
