Basil!

Ocimum basilicum, sown 12.3. the British seeds have already germinated. Maybe this year we will have our own Basil grow on the terrace.. and we did: it is 10th of October today and these guys are still going strong!! Had a wonderfully tasty Summer!

Hyssopus Officinalis

In 2008 Hyssop was sown 18.3. and already germinated 3 days after. They are now living in the flowerbeds and hopefully for many, many years, creating also winter interest.

Lavendula angustifolia syn. Lavendula munstead

Lavendula angustifolia syn. Lavendula munstead

Lavender sown 19.3. Alter two painful experiences of overwintering these indoors, I realized they should do fine outdoors even here, all year round! If these germinate they will be planted to the dry border together with Echinaceas. They did germinate and grow very well! And, in the end we did not dare to plant these little ones on the dry border, they will be pampered in the greenhouse for the winter!
