Seed Guardian, Cordwainers Garden
I’m a part of Cordwainers Garden. This year we’ve dedicated a plot to seed-saving for this project. I grow my own vegetables because I really enjoy growing things, and being able to grow things that...
Why I grow it
I like growing herbs to cook with and it’s a nice one that you can have raw, add to a salad, the flowers are really pretty. I think the bees quite like the flowers because they’re purple flowers, and it’s a really nice fragrant herb.
Where the seeds came from
The seeds originally came from a packet of seeds that I bought, but I’ve been saving them from plants I’ve grown.
How to grow
The seeds take quite a while to germinate and have to be at quite a high temperature. So I usually germinate it indoors in a heated propagator. Sometimes there are seeds that don’t work and you have to sow them again. But I had one successful batch, so I just separated those out and then planted some outside and some in a little greenhouse.
