Habitat: Lavender grows well in any soil. However, for optimal harvest, a dry, sandy and well-drained soil in an alkaline range is best.


History: The Latin name Lavandula derives from the verb lavare, meaning "to wash," And although Lavender is a favourite of many gardeners all over the world, it is indigenous to the Meditteranean. In the middle ages, it was used as an aphrodisiac, an aide to soothe hysteria and protect linens from moths.


Medicinal: Many herbalists in the previous and current century have employed lavender as an antispasmodic, stimulant and as a carminative. It is used to quiet coughs and is an aid in soothing eczema, psoriasis. When added to baths is great for soothing mild neuralgia pains. Note that the use of lavender teas as a herbal remedy should be done in moderation.

Fennel - Striking delicate foliage with a sweet black licorice flavour.  Produces root bulbs for cooking. Sprinkle harvested leaves on ice cream or in your favourite fruit dish. Fennel attracts beneficial insects is drought tolerant and very aromatic and can also be used in seafood recipes.   Holy Basil - Basil prefers a rich moist soil with plenty of Sun. It is advised to start your basil in a hotbed in April and the relocate it to a warm border in May planting about 10 inches to 1 foot apart. Basil dies down every year in Canada so it is considered an annual that must be sown every year.   Lemon Balm - Lemon scented flavour make this plant an excellent garnish and a delicious tea for colds. Also effective as a companion plant or bug barrier.

When watering the seed that needs light to germinate, it is important that you either use a spray bottle to keep the soil moist or water from the bottom by using a tray and filling the tray with water that allows the soil to soak up the water from the bottom up. Not using one of the 2 ways suggested may push the seed into the soil which will not allow optimal light conditions for proper germination. Also, be sure to sow Lemon Balm in bunches of 3,5 or 7 seeds to create a clumping effect as showing only one seed will only provide one small plant, that will take a longer time to allow for harvest or to create the desired bug barrier effect.  Lemon balm has a short rootstock is and the stems are square and branch out at each joint. The leaves are heart-shaped, toothed and emit an amazingly sweet lemon fragrance when bruised. Their distinct lemon taste makes them a perfect choice for tea. Lemon Balms flowers in small loose bunches from June to October.
