Herbs A-Z Listing of Herbs and Articles



This listing will take you to the various herbs with growing advice, and cultural methods. Herbs are rather chaotic in that they have many names - depending upon location and the generation gap. Some of the herb nurseries do not help matters - or their sales - by adding to the confusion.

 If you are growing herbs for medicinal or health reason, it is absolutely imperative that you get the name right! For instance, Sage is not simple Sage. It is a member of the very wide ranging Salvia family - some of which can be used for medicinal purposes - some most certainly cannot! Likewise with Geranium! There are hundreds of different Geraniums available - not all are herbs!

We will do all we can in this section of the site to make you aware of the importance of 'Names' but you MUST check and be aware of the herb that you are buying, or have growing in your garden.

Be aware that there are many 'peripheral' entities jumping on the bandwagon of herbalism. It is not really regulated, so take care at all times.
