I really enjoyed your article. I am on the edge of growing more herbs. I have quite a few (well, for me) but really very few I would know what to do with. As I expand I will have to become more familiar with what they are used for and how to use them. There are a couple I am going to pursue because of your article, Amica for one. Thanks for all the great info and what lovely photos!

Great article Bonehead. I am adding more herbs to my landscape this year for the honey bees.
One of my favorites to use in a salve is coriander because it helps ease arthritis pain. A better herb to use in place of cayenne as it does not burn the skin like cayenne does.

@Mindy03, I have trouble getting coriander/cilantro to grow for me - it tends to bolt really quickly. I think once it is established, it is difficult to contain the reseeding, but I've sure never had much luck with it. I do keep trying - sometimes from direct seed, other times from seedlings. I do like to make salves and anything to ease painful joints is welcome in my cabinet.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

The coriander seed has come chemical in it that blocks the pain causing feature of arthritis. If you do a search on coriander and arthritis you will learn a lot about it for that use.
I know it works because I've given some to several different people both male and female of different ages. It also helps bring blood to the area you apply it to so some people may feel a warmth from it at first.

Hey, Thanks, Mindy! That's good to know! I'm trying my hardest to subdue my RA with nutrition and herbs instead of infusions and drugs.
