What herbs did you grow this year? and what herbs are you going to grow next year??
I had a very good growing season with my herbs..... I had Rosemary, Basil, Chamomile, Apple Sage, sage, peppermint, apple mint, chocolate mint, spearmint, pineapple mint, catnip, thyme, lemon balm, lavender, parsley, and feverfew . My mints grow like wild, basil did not do as well... keep getting hard & dark shots on the leaves.
german chamomile, common sage, basil, chives, garlic chives, peppermint, mint, orange mint, purple sage, clary sage, thyme, catnip, lemon balm, bee balm, lavender, marjoram, oregano, rosemary and parsley
Merry meet! First, I'd like to start by saying hello to everyone since I just joined the group. I continued lavender, sage, basil, yarrow, and calendula from last year. Coincidentally, I made my own sage smudge sticks as well. I also added thyme, savory, chives, and rosemary this year. I have been trying to get coneflower and chamomile going as well, but that hasn't gone well. Oh, I also added hibiscus this year and it was doing great until my goats made it their midday snack one afternoon!
i so wish i could grow things . i just don't have a green thumb . i have killed things i was told it is impossible to kill. on top of that i have very poor soil .... it is nothing but sand . are there any herbs i can grow in sand ?
I grew Basil, Rosemary and Parsley. The storms had damaged the plants and will be replanting herbs soon as well as veggie plants. I am in the process of researching what to plant this time of year.
Calendula, Echinacea, St. John's Wort, Cilantro, and Tulsi (Holy Basil)
My Tulsi was Prolific! but sadly my st. johns wort and echinacea were scanty and sad looking no matter what I did.
Next year more Tulsi, try another rout with st johns wort, more cilantro and calendula and maybe try some mint in a pot as well as some geraniums and sage.
In my garden I grew Rosemary, English Lavender, Thyme, Parsley, Oregano, Basil, Dill, Chives and in a pot I grew Lemongrass and Catnip. My cat for one loved it, I guess she thought it was her own personal jungle. Next year, I plan on adding Spearmint, Peppermint and White Sage to the mix.
This year was horrible I bought my father Cilantro for his birthday and was helping him grow it, it looked a little sickly when i bought it but the best out of the bunch, I thought my dad would be able to nurse it back to health but it didn't make it. I really want to grow Oregano and Sage bc i use them the most.
We only grew sage and chives this year, we are in the process of selling the house and have not planted anything new. Can't wait till we find a new place so we can get back to planting a bunch of herbs.
