ANGIE'S HERB PICKS FOR THE UPCOMING GARDENING SEASON

Posted on March 8, 2011 at 2:02 PM Comments comments (513)
Purple Hollyhock:  stunningly beautiful, has edible flowers that grace the top of a cake quite nicely
Tulsi (aka Holy or Sacred Basil):  much easier to grow than regular basil, has strong medicinal properties, revered in India by the spiritual community
Nasturtium:  super easy to grow & germinates quickly, has bright cheery flowers that are spicy & delicious in salads, leaves are also edible
Red Bergamot:  has hot pink flowers that smell & taste gorgeous, leaves & flowers may be added to black tea to give an earl grey-like flavour
Horehound:  leaves have a very interesting texture, can be made into delicious lozenges to treat coughs
Luffa:  yes, like the sponges!  A friend of mine successfully grew & dried her own luffas & they look just like store-bought ones!
Chocolate Mint:  need I say more??
Nigella:  very easy to grow, has very beautiful alien-like blue flowers that can be dried & applied to herbal wreaths, has edible seeds
Perilla (aka Shiso or Japanese Basil):  easy to grow, a delicious addition to sushi & salads, an often effective treatment for seasonal allergies

Happy Seed Hunting!
