I am soo excited!! I am a few weeks late, but I started a personal medicinal herb garden. I got a few herbs from the store(chamomile, sage, lemon blam...etc), and ordered the rest(mugwort, echinachea, elder..etc). I started my seeds in peat pellets, and planted the rest(I ran out of room..LOL). I got a Barberry bush, and a Mexican Heather plant(no one sells sctotch heather around here). I got my roses going too!!<br>
I just had to share my happiness, since gardening makes me soooo happy!! I am so proud of myself to so far have a successful garden right on my porch( I live in an apartment, so I started a container garden).<br>
It is taking off nicely, and the wild flowers I started two weeks ago are taking off!!<br>
I havent been this successful in years, I gues my happiness, excitement and determination transfered to the plants and they absorbed my energy and now are growing for me ...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
I wish everyone a wonderful green day!!<br>
I cant wait for the plants to grow big so I can harvest them and use them in my home..<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Sounds wonderful<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I was glad to read you put your lemon balm in a container. I planted 3 small springs from my Mom's garden about 5 years ago. It TOOK over the garden and chokes everything else out. I have spent 2 years trying to get rid of it.<br><br>
I do have some Lemon Balm recipes though....as I tried to make the best of it last summer! (Lemon balm tea, chicken etc...)<br><br>
Have you ever tried Pineapple Sage? It smells wonderful, just like a fresh sliced pineapple and gets fire-red blooms in the fall.<br><br>
I love Mexican Heather as well....very pretty purple.
