I've had lots of success with mints, and traditional culinary herbs (basil, rosemary, oregano, etc) so far. After making May wine with the last of my meadowsweet and sweet woodruff, I am now wondering if these can be grown well in pots?
Just found this as it almost slipped off the page. I guess you could grow these in pots altho' they may take a bit more effort since the traditional in pots culinary herbs are mediterranean & need lots of sun & not too much water.
Woodruff is a woodland plant I think so would need to be kept dry. It may need to be shaded a bit as well. I don't think we get it here, but it used to grow wild near where I lived in England.
Meadowsweet I love. I grew some from seed once & it was my pride & joy. I have it in my garden. It needs to be kept moist since it is a riverside plant naturally & mine also dies down in winter.
The may wine sounds divine. Maybe you should post the recipe & I'll save it for next spring
