Seed Tip - Herbs Easy from Seed
There are a number of herbs that start very easily by seed:
Anise, Basil (up in 3 days!), Borage, Calendula (herb of the year for 2008), Caraway, Dill, Chives, Coriander, Fennel, Nasturtium, Summer Savory. Most of these are annuals and they are all easy from seed. If you want to try your hand at starting seeds for the first time, choose from this list.
Seeds for the Adventurous: Mints, Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Rosemary, Sage, Parsley, Thyme, Oregano, Hops, Lovage and Wormwood. These are all perennials or in the case of Rosemary, a tender perennial. Many of them we start by rootings, usually by taking a stalk of the Rosemary or Lavender and simply adding it to the willow water.
