|Last year I decided to devote the back garden to all aromatic plants. Much mulch was purchased, many plants transplanted.|
This area has mints, roses, motherwort & more mint.
|Some plants returned and some did not. Losses included 6 lavender plants, 1 sage, 1 lemongrass & 1 lemon balm.|
Here we have some artemesia sages & MINT
|I wanted photos of the garden before I started harvesting for distillations.There is 1 lavender plant hiding behind the mints somewhere.|
|I call this the fairy sanctuary area of the garden. Just a few stray mints in this area, mostly red thyme.|
|I seem to have 2 varieties of oregano, 1 that blooms pink; 1 white.|
|the white oregano|
|the first distillation I plan on doing is the lemon thyme, this stuff smells amazing.|
|This is my GIANT comfrey plant that Jackie from GloryBe Herbals gave me last year, it got huge!|
Next summer I plan to scatter lots of seed, see what comes up and let mother nature take the wheel.
