Herbs can spice up your winter

| January 2006

Gardeners considering growing herbs at home to add some special flavor to their winter can look to the Internet for some inspiration. The United States National Arboretum in Washington, D.C., contains the National Herb Garden, the nation's largest designed herb garden in the nation. On the Web page about the garden, visitors will learn about the garden and some of the herbs contained there: www.usna.usda.gov/Gardens/collections/herb.html

The National Herb Garden began as a gift to the public from the Herb Society of America. From the society's Web site, visitors can read profiles of herbs, view photographs of them, and get ideas for family projects involving herbs: www.herbsociety.org

Golden Owl Herb Farm's Web site is one commercial stop where visitors can get some ideas for some possible plant purchases: www.goldenowlherbfarm.com

The Web site of Herbs for Health magazine features articles on a variety of herbs, and includes many helpful recipes for creating a variety of herbal products. A recent visit to the site included guidelines for creating bath salts, lip balm, truffles, herbal vinegar and more: www.HerbsForHealth.com

The Herb Companion, a sister publication of Herbs for Health, also maintains a Web site with plenty of resources for the herb grower. Recent articles on the site included a guide to mail-order nurseries, step-by-step instructions for creating a 'growing tree' of lavender, and recipes for pumpkin cream soup, skillet corn bread with cheddar, corn and chiles, and maple scones with lemon verbena and candied ginger: www.herbcompanion.com
