Hello! I'm new to the forum and to gardening as well. I hope I've placed this in the correct area!
I'm currently in the process of preparing for my own tea and vegetable garden.
Vegetable gardening information is more readily available, but there is a lot to be figured out about growing plants for tea. I found a nice website that suggests a few things to try to make various herbal teas but it only had a few suggestions.
I am currently growing some peppermint in a pot (it was readily available as I had a neighbor who planted theirs straight into the ground and it spread like wildfire of course, haha) and just placed an order for Camellia Sinensis seeds. That's where I get stuck...where can I buy seeds for other types of teas? Is there a good place online? Would a local nursery be likely to have them? I probably should look but kind of doubt that they would have many of the kinds I'm looking for..and in that case, where would I find them?
Also, if anyone else has grown their own tea or knows anyone who has, do they have recommendations for types they've liked and had success with? I'm looking for basically any type as I am very open-minded with teas and would just like to hear others' opinions.
Thanks for any and all help
