My Lemon Herb Wish List!

Three Lemon Favorites in a Western Facing Window!
The 'Lemon Crispum' Scented Geranium, the 'Lemon Meringue' Scented Geranium and the lemon verbena have all survived the very cold windowsill and are going gangbusters!  I talked a bit yesterday about lemon or potpourri or a combo.  Here is a brief list of lemon favorites:

Possibilities for My Lemon Herb Garden

Lemon thyme (Thymus x citriodorus)
Golden lemon thyme (Thymus citriodorus 'Aureus')
Lemon Frost thyme  (Thymus 'Lemon Frost')
'Lemon Balm' scented geranium (Pelargonium 'Lemon Balm')
'French Lace' scented geranium (Pelargonium 'French Lace')
'Mabel Grey' scented geranium (Pelargonium 'Mabel Grey')
'Lemon Crispum' scented geranium (Pelargonium 'Lemon Crispum')
'Lemon Rose' scented geranium (Pelargonium 'Lemon Rose')
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus)
Lemon Verbena (Aloysia triphylla)
Lemon Basil (Ocimum basilicum 'Citriodorum')
Lemon Mint (Monarda citriodora)
Lemon Catnip (Nepeta cataria 'Citriodora')
Lemon Gem Marigolds (Tagetes tenuifolia)
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) (Have lots of this already!)
Lemon Savory  (Satureja biflora)

Probably not going to use all of these, but some of them and as you can see I have a head start in the windowsill.  Here is a link to Geri Laufer's list called Lemon Gardens:  Grow These Lemon-Scented Herbs.  We'll talk about the potpourri herbs next time.  Snow this morning, but sun and warmer this afternoon.  Spring can't come soon enough!  Talk to you later.
