Aromatic Herbs in March

Growing aromatic herbs
March 21, 2011

A walk among the aromatic herbs and herbal teas at the beginning of spring: harvests, small tasks, and future promises.

Horse mintThe horse mint has been productive throughout the winter and now it has new green leaves, to use raw.

Some ideas: mint recipes


PennyroyalThe pennyroyal sowed in October is more abundant than ever: it's more delicate than mint, with smaller and tender leaves.


White MintThe white mint is emerging from winter dormancy: I just removed all old stems and some weeds.


Apple MintThe apple mint is developing new shoots too.


BuckIt looks like grass, but it's buck's-horn plantain: an aromatic herb that I added to many winter dishes.


Wild ThymeWild thyme is more resistant than regular thyme, but less aromatic. I like to use its tiny leaves fresh instead of drying it.


Curly Leaf ParsleyCurly Leaf Parsley is decorative but it also has a good parsley flavour.


ChamomileThis chamomile plant surprised me borning in an empty pot: it started to bolt and I will begin to harvest it soon.

MirtleThe mirtle sowed last year is growing slowly. I never growed this plant before, but I guess it's too soon to think about the harvest.
