Grandmas Einck's Dill:
(A. graveolens) Iowa heirloom grown near Festina, Iowa since 1920 by Katherine Einck’s family (Diane Ott Whealy’s grandmother). Large fragrant heads and abundant long-lasting foliage. Great for canning or fresh use. Germination is erratic, so please be patient. Self-seeding annual.
(A. tuberosum) Mild garlic-flavored flattened leaves. Beautiful white star-shaped flower clusters are a pleasant surprise in late August. Perennial in zones 4-8.
Native to Europe, Africa, and Asia, chamomile has foliage and flowers with such a pleasant fragrance that for centuries these plants have been allowed to self-sow along the edges of paths and walkways where their fragrance can be enjoyed. This herb’s graceful plants are 12-20" tall with endless masses of 1" attractive, daisy-like flowers that can be used to make tea. Annual.
(Origanum heracleoticum) This species, commonly known as Greek oregano, is thought to have a cleaner and sharper taste than true oregano. An essential garden herb with a pungent flavor, this perennial bears light green, pointed, oval leaves that are slightly wavy at the edges. Perennial in zones 4-9.
Isle of Naxos Basil:
A lettuce-leaf strain, this tall basil grows 24-30" and produces a steady crop of large, lush leaves, if its flowers are pinched off regularly. The basil comes from longtime Seed Savers Exchange member and advisor David Cavagnaro, who received it from Jana Muhar, who collected the seeds while living on the Greek island of Naxos. Annual.
