To all flower lovers like me . You must grow some MOON flowers. They smell like the sweetest smell you have ever experience and also they bloom at night and they are a big as saucer. Also you can mix your morning glories with the moon flower seeds and you have day and night blooms.also the make real pretty vines if you have something to climb on

I added info to the event area about Fort Worth's annual Herb Festival if anyone is close and interested.

Margaret - That sounds yummy! What are you going to roll up in the basil? What about some chopped tomatoes with provolone marinated in an oil and vinegar.

Margaret - We make our own pizza and fresh basil on it. I planted some 'lettuce basil' that has large leaves that you can make roll-ups with, can't wait to try it!

I make tea out of lemon balm, parsley and chamomile flowers - it's delicious and very soothing for your tummy and relaxing. I love Lemon Balm because it spreads, but in little clumps and it's SO pretty.

Janice, I think that's a great idea. I have always had to go to the person's profile page to see where they are located, or ask them.

Herbs are the best and so good for you. I have 15 different herbs planted at this time and use most at all meals, I would love to hear from herbs growers on how they use them in different foods?

Janice, Good idea! Done!

Mark where and what zone you are from...Posted by Janice Dugan z5/6 PA
Might I suggest that everyone edit your name on MY PAGE. I just did mine and I think it would be helpful when looking for a certain zone or state when you are reading other posts. I can never figure out where someone lives unless I check out each one. Some people have flowers that have bloomed and died and mine are just getting started, so this would make it easier to see why.

All I did was beside my name I added: z5/6 PA . With this you can see I am in both zones and live in PA. I think this is the easiest way for all to be identified. So what do you all think???

The only one that reseeded well was the common Sweet Basil. I had many plants of that one come back up.
Comment by Cheryl Davis Z 8 VA on May 7, 2009 at 4:28pm
I love basil! I can never get it to reseed. Can you? In summer I use it fresh with fresh tomatoes and feta cheese on pasta with olive oil as dressing and it is the essence of summer flavor.
