Grow your own medicinal herbs - Herb Garden Update

Well it is August here in Saskatchewan and as much as I am NOT READY to admit it, my growing season is coming to a close.

It has been a busy first season of growing my own medicinal plants. Some have been amazing and some less so, but the whole idea with this garden is that it will be mostly perennial - so the long haul is just as important as the first year.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about - this is my first year creating, planning, and putting in the grunt work of creating a medicinal herb garden in the front yard of my urban lot in Saskatchewan, Canada. You can check out my other blog posts about this, as well as my YouTube channel, where I have been documenting it all.

Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) flowers just blooming like crazy in my front yard herb garden.

So where to start? Well this garden came together very much in bits and pieces. I started with buying seeds for plants that I knew I wanted to grow - picking plants that I use a lot with my family and in clinic. Chamomile and Lemonbalm were heavily featured.
