Herb List 1

Wooden wall of my garden shed proved to be an ideal place for drying herbs. It is warm and airy and takes only a few days for bunches of herbs to dry.That's what we want, don't we? If they are dried quickly they preserve more flavour. 
Some of my herbs are:

Salvia officinalis 'Icterina'

Purple Basil

Melissa officinalis, lemon balm


Mentha piperita, pepper mint

Rosmarinus officinalis, rosemary, trailing

Salvia officinalis 'Tricolor', sage

Salvia officinalis, sage


  1. I like your collection of salvias :) I have only one variety, but I want to expand my collection.

    I always dry tons of stinging nettle and mint.

  2. I had a tricolor sage which grew so weakly but yours looks really healthy

  3. Nice! But I'm not a great fan of dried herbs. I like them better fresh (with a few exceptions, like Oregano).
