Witch Garden Poll

I always liked beautiful flower gardens, but in someone else’s backyard. For me, everything has to have a purpose. So, I prefer to see herbs and spices than pretty flowers. That’s why I have my small, yellow garden. In fact, it is going to be yellow, when everything here starts blooming. This tall, yellow plant on the picture is St. John’s wort and smaller ones are marigolds. Most of them are still babies, so in few weeks I expect to see fifty shades of yellow and orange. ? Sunflowers will be at their peaks in summer and that is going to be a real sight for my eager eyes.

All of those plants are more than useful. For example, St. John’s wort’s oil is great balm for burnt skin, or wounds. Lemon balm tea is good for nerves, marigold tea purifies liver and balm made of this plant is good for wounds and hemorrhoids. Aloes are both for internal and external treatment for many diseases. Oregano tea soothes cough and dried plant is used as a spice. Mint tea is good for stomach problems, etc…..

  1. I feel the same as you do about useful plants, Zaklina. The herbs I am most likely to have on hand are lemon balm, basil, oregano, rosemary, peppermint, and thyme. I don’t have much of an outdoor garden, but grow a lot of stuff soil-free indoors.

    • Did I mention that I have three kinds of basil, rosemary and thyme in planted in pots? 🙂 These are still small plants, so I keep them in pots until they grow up enough to be replaced in the garden. Also, I put some sage seed in the ground, but have no idea how it looks like while growing. 😀
