To the beginning grower, it can be a bit overwhelming to choose among the many herbs. We’ve taken the guesswork out by suggesting five herbs that are relatively easy to start from seed. Medicinal flowers are chosen on the basis of their great utility in herbal medicine. Frankly, a garden with just these plants is a great boost to anyone’s self-sufficiency! All of them are perennials except the holy basil and the calendula, which are annuals. Both of this self-seed readily if allowed to go to seed, whereupon new plants will arise the following year. All the plants in this collection are dependable growers for making the most basic herbal teas, tinctures and salves. Directions for planting are printed right on the packet.
There are so many wonderful things that can be made with these great medicinal herbs! Make sure to check out more about each herb in our Herbal Studio & Communi-tea!
