the last couple of years i've wanted to get my collection going again, from joining in on the DTE forums peeked my interests in herbs again. they have a herb ally going there which mine is feverfew & i will post about that another time.
the feverfew has taken off & is flowering all through the front garden, it looks so happy! there is also oregano & lemon thyme & finally got the common thyme growing out the front too.

also have some tansy & comfrey growing out the front & a few comfrey in pots, just waiting to find some good spots to put them, they don't seem to survive very well in the heat here & struggle throughout the hot months.
bought some new herbs & spices from Mudbrick Cottage, it's my favourite place to buy herbs from in queensland. thursday my 2 new additions arrived they are Lemon Verbena Aloysia triphylla (syn. Lippia citrodora) & Peppermint scented geranium Pelargonium Tomentosum.

i would like to grow lots of different herbs, they are wonderful plants with many health benefits, they are not hard to grow, some are just a bit picky & so it's trial & error until you find the right places they like to grow.
so far have growing; parsley, basil, tansy, lemon & common thyme, (latter is growing wild out in the paddock) comfrey, aloe vera, mint, chives, oregano, nasturtiums, lavender, lemon/rose scented geranium, wormwood, rosemary, catnip, calendular, marigolds & the 2 mentioned above. that's all i can remember at the moment, am just happy my list is growing.
do you grow herbs?
thanx for visiting
