Healing plants... grow them... eat them...feel the love..to quote Annabel White

I have heaps of herbs in my garden.  They have been an obsession for twenty five years. I companion plant so that I don't have to use any toxic chemicals or unnatural fertilisers. I  have been organic gardening forever, just like Prince Charles and long before it became popular.
I have parsely, mint,  lemon balm (great as a relaxing tea), comfrey (fantastic for adding to water and rotting down for a natural fertiliser), oregano (to add to vegetarian pizza's), sage, rosemary, thyme, feverfew, nastursians, hyssop, catmint...on and on. I often give cuttings away if people visit because to be a good gardner is to be generous and I have received lots of cuttings from other  gardeners in the past.

What is you favourite herb and why?

White bells are flooded with memories of being four in my parents garden. Sure that fairies lived underneath and certain that the morepork who hooted nightly in the gully across the road would swoop over the Pussy Willow and cart me off to hell.
I have a morepork who visits every night now and he hoots in the Cedar tree, no thoughts of hell dwell in my garden now.
