    Apple mint is a very nice variety of mint. I love pineapple sage - not as assertive as garden sage. But it will not overwinter here, and I've had little luck in keeping it in the house. So I buy a new plant each year.

    Apple mint? I have not heard of that. I have grown the pineapple sage in El Paso and it did very well. It came back each year. Since moving this is the first year I have tried it and we shall see how it does. When the leaves are crumpled the aroma is wonderful and the blooms are so pretty.

    wave.gif Hi girls!
    I've heard about the pineapple sage, but I've never seen it icon_eek.gif

    My mint is slowly slowly coming now.
    Sage, rosemary,savory,bay and thyme had no problems during this winter. Marjoram, Lemonbalm and chives are coming,
    Basil? Still from the shop and in a pot.
    Under glass I have pasley, arugula and celery ("Schnitt Sellerie").
    I think some dill is coming from itself (under the glass).

    Well, I'm still missing more mint, I love it; I different kind I collected.

    And....Mia, I hope your rosemary will be ready in about two weeks; In 15 days I will check if it has roots! We had a long winter this year.
    Abricot flowers opened only 2 days ago. Today I saw that blackthorn finally flourishing![/b]
    Cherry threes and still not flourishing!

    Hi awalde wave.gif icon_biggrin.gif
    How are you? Did you have a wonderful time?
    I'm digging my way through the garden, finally, removing tons of moss and weeds which loved the constantly moist weather icon_lol.gif
    You're such a dear - I'm so looking forward to see some "real" rosemary. I have a pot in the kitchen which made the winter quite well, but it barely has any fragrance and the new leaves and sprigs are faint and curly.
    What kinds of mint do you have in your garden?


    We have Maroccan mint, one kind of spearmint "Diosmos" form Greece (for Greek Middle East and Greek food) one kind of spearmint I got about 30 years ago in Lugano (Switzerland). I can use both spearmints for cooking. Maroccan mint is delicious for drinks, but I can use it as the other spearmints for cooking as well.

    I'm missing my mint plants during wintertime very much!

    Good morning all. It has been a crazy week. I have had friends visiting from El Paso and haven't been on line much. My herbs are growing and doing well. We went by our vegetable garden and my beans and peas are coming up. I really love this time of year.

    Hi Paula wave.gif
    I love it, too. Can't wait to plant my little newbies but have to weed the beds first. It can be difficult sometimes with all that rain, but finally it's dry now.

    Have a nice day icon_biggrin.gif
