I am not much of a green thumb-but I just wanted to add that for some unexplainable reason the more I ignore certain herbs, the better they do..I live in south central TX though, so ymmv
Rosemary is a *prime* example-every single one I planted (and bothered to WATER, and I mean EVER) died. Then a couple years ago I planted some in the back by the AC (really sunny, very hot and dry!) is now 5 times its original size-I just noticed it today, and was shocked because I basically planted it and then forgot it...and it's doing fabulously.
God's obviously a better gardener than me
Thanks for the link to the gardening site! Sounds like a great place!
