Hey Hinda,

Have you notice I appear to be following you around lol?

All three herbs you have mentioned are listed as mediterranean herbs so I would suggest that you buy or get cuttings of the varieties that are grown in your area and enjoy.

Look at the top of the herbs page and you will see a post call Herbs - an overview. That will probably give you most of the information you need.

i wouldnt call it following around - more like a friend that is looking out for me - thanks for eveything so far. just knowing that someone is listening is very comforting.
thanks for your advice about the herbs

Hi Hinda wavey
I've never grown rosemary or bay leaf but I grow basil every year. I've always grown it right in the garden but this year I'm keeping it in large planters. I'm using a high quality potting soil, fertilizing every 2 weeks and making sure it gets lots of sun. Basil loves the sun!! I started mine from seed this year and you can do the same or buy some basil and transplant it in a larger pot - whatever u want. It's easy to grow. Hope this helps.

Hi again,

...it's me. laugh

From what I've been reading about the mediterrean zone (bet I mis-spelled that one big time) most of our common herbs started out there. So it seems that you might be in the perfect place to have lots of fantastic herbs. There is a thyme that is suppose to make a great ground cover that would probably work between your paving stones. If it did it might even stop some weeds from popping up in that location. And from what I've read it also smells good as it is walked on and recovers quickly. Wouldn't that be cool?

Also Lavender is suppose to grow well in your location and that is a great smelling plant.

I am so excited for you. You wouldn't happen to have a digital camera? I really REALLY want to see your garden.

anyone know of any free tickets to israel? lala (You wouldn't mind if I stopped by for a peek would you?) just kidding. But if you could get some pictures to post that would be fantastic.
