So, THOSE didn't sprout last year, but I'm trying again with some seeds that I left to mature. They were blooming outside last fall and should have been insect pollinated, and the few seeds I plucked off for germination test look much more filled out than the ones from last year.
...we shall see...
I'm going to get around to properly storing the rest of the seedheads this week, trimming the dried up mother plant to the soil level, then putting the basal root system/pot in the unheated garage for the rest of the winter to hopefully recuperate. (But as I mentioned elsewhere, I have several cuttings that are growing well, so I WILL have replacement plants if this one has reached its lifespan.)
Subject: Indoor organic herb gardening
Here are photo collages of my Winter Indoor Herb "Garden". I grow all of these outside during the warmer months -- some in containers, others in the ground and then dug up and potted for winter. These are mostly ones that don't survive the winter outside here. The ones that normally survive outside or are "borderline" (sometimes survives and sometimes not) are harder to keep indoors during the winter.
