|Just a Little List of Herbs That Died in the Herb Garden!|
I had two curry plants die, two lavenders, one called 'Mini Blue' and the other one that I should not kill a 'Munstead', my favorite, lemon verbena. We think it died from too much water and then no water at all. Finally, there was an yerba buena that I was going to celebrate in talking about the 2015 Herb of the Year, Savory. Well, a talk for another time!
Didn't have many nasturtiums. The basils got too much water early on and didn't survive. Although I have one lemon basil that is making a comeback. The 'Spicy Globe' basil in one of the combination containers did very well. The "sweet" basil that I bought last year as a hydroponically grown plant has finally said enough and quit producing. It said one year is enough! Don't think you are getting more than that. If anyone can get more out of a plant of any kind though, it is The Herbal Husband. I always say to him just compost it and he secretly puts it in a corner and it starts to shoot new leaves! We will see this time.
