When did the first belief sprout? Who was the first one to look at a simple plant and think … this could protect us? Heal us? Help us find good fortune?
Yet we do know that throughout history, people of all faiths have used herbs to perform little folk magicks.
Herb gardens come in all shapes and sizes. They can be as modest as a few pot herbs in a windowsill or as large as time and resources permit.
Herbs with a common purpose, such as healing, can be themed together. Or herbs can be grown in a happy podge throughout the garden
This site is an ongoing labour of love chronicling my own journeys in herb gardening.
I live in a lovely little pocket of Zone 6b in the beautiful Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia. This herbal only includes the herb plants that can be grown in my gardening zone.
