Growing Herbs
Share Your Experience and Knowledge

herbsAre you growing herbs? Our readers would benefit from your understanding and expertise. Share your precious knowledge with others who would rather use an herbal tea if it is possible, than take a mediation that causes side effects.

In this economy people would benefit in knowing what to use to protect their children from mosquito bites. Is there an herb or herbal tea that can be used for that?

My favorite gripe, as you may already know, is junk drinks that are loaded with sugars or artificial sugars and sodium. Can you make a suggestion for a safe alternative herbal tea that would be good for small children as well as teens and even adults?

Many drink herbal teas just for the pleasure of the taste as well.

herbal tea garden container

Pictured to the right is the kind of container I use to grow my herbs and flowers. I highly recommend the self watering container system. Your plants will love you for housing them in the containers purchased at Gardener's Supply Company and they will reward you with healthy vibrant herbs and flowers while requiring less work on your part.
