Herbs in Action - CILANTRO
Cilantro or Coriander - it doesn't matter what you call it. This versatile herb is easy to cultivate, tastes good in cooking, leaves, stalks and seeds are harvested and it even chases away flies and mosquitoes. It's a sunshine herb and likes cool weather planting. Grow some - you will be pleased!

Herbs in Action - CURRY PLANT
Grow something different - grow a Curry Plant. It's an aromatic herb, looks good, repels bugs and deer, smells spicy and sweet and like curry (nice I say) and while its effect in the kitchen is mild, the growing of this unusual herb is easy, low maintenance and low on water requirements too. Try!

Herbs in Action - LAVENDER
Many plants and herbs share their fragrances readily with us which makes our container gardening efforts well worth it. Besides the many other uses of Lavender, the pleasure we get from this exquisitely scented group of plants makes them a real garden favourite! Plant a container soon, it's easy.

Herbs in Action - MINT
Mint, a most useful herb and amongst our favourites is so easy to grow and use that it makes all the effort a real pleasure! Made a Mint Julep recently? Had some mint sauce with your roast lamb? Enjoyed a cup of refreshing Peppermint tea? It's all calming and healthy; and it adds fragrance too.

Herbs in action - NASTURTIUM
Make good use of your Nasturtium green seeds and pickle them for the joy of using your own home-grown produce. Making these ‘poor-man’s-capers’ makes sense too. So easy to grow, so easy to harvest, so easy to use, they will make a good hostess gift too and it’s your container garden in action!

Herbs in Action - TARRAGON
For pleasure and fragrance, for taste tingles and recipe zing and for easy if caring growing in containers, you won’t go too wrong with French Tarragon. This ‘phat’ feathery green herb is a wonderful addition to your herb collection so plan to grow some soon.

Herbs in Action - VERDOLAGAS
Verdolagas? Purslane? Pigsweed? Portulaca oleracea? Use any of these names and internationally someone somewhere would know about it. This edible herbaceous plant and beneficial weed is as versatile as they come. Shakespeare wrote of it! In containers? Of course! In the kitchen? Definitely.

Journalling
Keeping a garden journal is not an exact science! No-one is going to check if yours is neat enough; and anyway your notebook is a unique and personal garden diary which summarises your container gardening actions. It is a fine memory jogger, and an excellent record of all - start one today!

JULY 2011 Moon Gardening Guide
Gardening by the Moon is becoming more popular as we discover and research more of what our ancestors did when planning crops and gardens and right times for right actions to harvest the right results. Read on to get the first monthly Lunar Garden Guide. There will be a new guide every month.

Lemon Trees in Containers
Growing your own container lemon tree is a treat for many reasons – least of which is being able to have lemon tea! It's a versatile fruit with many uses in several arenas not the least of which includes the kitchen, for health, for homecare, cleaning and just for plain garden beauty. Here’s how.
