Rosemary and thyme add a lovely crispness to the air in the bathroom.
At the op-shop recently, I discovered The Herb & Spice Book by Sarah Garland. It describes both the history and uses of a lot of different herbs, as well as providing some very nice recipes. Flicking through it, my interest in herbs has been renewed. I have very successfully grown rosemary in our front yard and a little bit of thyme, but everything else has foundered in the baking sun and dry soil. But now, interest re-ignited and faith restored, yesterday I bought tansy, rue, lemon balm, oregano and sage. The first two I will put into the ground because apparently they grow to be quite large but the latter three will go into pots which I will place near to the front door, so as to hopefully be greeted with a lovely aroma as we enter and exit the house. Does anyone have any herb growing tips?
