Someone once asked me what was the logic behind the choices of plants which I grew in my herb garden? Why did one plant grow profusely while the other was completely absent from the beds or borders?
Well, the answer is – the choice of plants in my herbal garden depend on these things – how useful and beneficial they are as natural and curative herbs. How often can I use them while preparing natural, healthy meals in the kitchen? How often can I harvest them? And last but not the least, how much trouble will I have to take, while growing them?
This last should show you that I am more of an herbalist and cook than I am a gardener! In fact, sometimes the mere thought of going out in the garden, and getting soil under my nails makes me want to make childish faces and whine like an un-oiled machine.
Also, rain in the face and midges are all very tolerable, when you are young, but as you grow older, you prefer sitting down in an easy chair, and in a warm room, instead of kneeling outdoors and weeding.
