    This year I am putting the basil and cilantro in pots so I can move them to shaded areas when it gets hot.


    I think I will do that as well. Sounds like a great idea. I think that during the hottest part of the summer I'll be able to move my herbs just under the steps to the deck.

    Hi Paula wave.gif
    What is pineapple sage? I've never heard of that.
    Have you ever planted thai basil? I so love that herb, but it's nearly impossible to find here, so I wondered if it would survive in my garden if I find some.

    Hi Mia. I had my response to you almost ready, hit the wrong button and deleted it. I hate it when that happens.

    Pineapple sage



    I grew it quite successfully when El Paso. It was stunning when it bloomed. I was excited to see it at the local farmers market this weekend. I'm hoping it does well here. The crushed leaves are reminiscent of fresh pineapple.

    Several years ago I planted Thia Basil and it tried to take over the garden. I haven't planted it here yet. Way try it in a container on the deck. I planted sweet and purple basil this weekend.

    That looks beautiful! What do you use it for? Or is it just decoration?

    I'll try to find the Thai basil here. Is sweet basil just basil or another specific variety? I do know the red one, though. A friend of mine used to have lemon basil.

    The pineapple sage attracts butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden. The leaves are edible and can be used in a variety of dishs. Itnis particularly good in teas, fruit salads and chicken dishes.

    Thanks for the info! I found an organic online supplier who has it, and he has Thai basil and a lot of other herbs which I've been looking for, too!
    I even found something new which sounds quite fancy: pineapple and orange mint.

    So I think orange mint is recommendable icon_wink.gif
    On April 21 there is a farmer's fair in our village where lots of herbs are offered, too. Maybe I'm lucky there!
    The weather is jumping from below freezing last Sunday to 70 this Sunday icon_eek.gif So i guess I can make it into the garden, finally icon_lol.gif

    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?

    Good morning all. Here are a few photos of my new little plants.

    This one is just off the steps to my deck. There is baby rosemary, orange mint, parsley and pineapple sage.



    Here are a couple of my container gardens. This one is new and has purple and sweet basil, parsley and lavender (I think).



    Here is my hold over from last year. It has rosemary, a struggling sage and beautiful oregano.
