Hi Bobbee, I have a pdf on Russian Comfrey, written by LD Hills. I'd be happy to send it to you... just let me know.
Good heavens!!! Thanks Miaowzen, I googled 'cleavers' and this is the first link off the block. Another amazing herb! But it is still a darn nuisance in and around the garden.Here's one link if anyone is interested.http://www.altnature.com/gallery/cleavers.htm
Vietnamese mint is super yum in stir fries, but use small amounts to begin with as it has a robust effect on the flavour.I use a variety of mints in herbal teas but I especially enjoy sage, come to think of it maybe adding mint to the sage would be tasty. I dried peppermint a few years ago and found a large glass jar of it just a week or two ago and the mint is in perfect condition. I haven't made a tea from it yet but must, just to check on the strength.
Yes I have never 'taken care of' my rosemary plants either willowoffgood. Yellow tips sounds though sounds like either over watering or a deficiency of some sort. I am not very good with minerals and stuff. I would plant it out in the ground Narla or at least check the root system for overcrowding or wet feet, and if not to wet I would give it seasol. Hope it works out for you.
My girls love chickweed and I'm told Comfrey is quite popular. I've also read that garlic added to their drinking water is good for worming.
Thought I would update with my new additions. Cinnamon Pepper (Piper nigrum) VanillaI also bought licorice but I think it's rotted with all the rain we've had : (
I have a friend who lives in the Dandenongs and I saw it at her home. She asked what it was so I told her. But she then went on to say what we were looking at was tiny compared to what she did have, It can be very invasive as the seeds are flicked out. It is easily weeded out and when it is small, which is all I have here it looks so sweet and fragile. Susan
