  1. Thanks for this link to your interview. I just got started herb gardening last year, and I’ve been wondering what to add to the garden this year. Your info has been very helpful, and I’ll likely be buying some plants from your nursery come spring!

    • Hello Sharon,
      One of the best things about February is it is such a good time to plan. If this is the second year you’ve gained experience. I would say add plants that you’d like for cooking. Fresh herbs are a pleasure to use and I suggest you read through the descriptions. I’d say if you like using lemon, you’ll enjoy Lemon Thyme and Lemon Basil and maybe Lemon Verbena. Lemon Mint is more for the collector and if you want to add Lemon Balm, I suggest you go with the plant that doesn’t produce seed. That’s a start and I hope it’s helpful.
