Plant a pot of herbal tea

Growtime: Plant a pot of mixed herbs to make your home grown,  refreshing herbal tea. These are best planted in a pot or they run rampant in the garden.

For a mint tea: a few leaves of Mentha x piperata; For a Turkish-style version, a few leaves ofMentha longifolia – schimperi (I like with sugar); Just two leaves of lemon verbena (Aloysia citriodora) makes a sweet fragrant tea; A mixed blend of Mellissa officinalis (lemon balm), lemon verbena and/or mint is a mild blend – great the day after a late night.
