Culture: Some herbs are customarily grown from divisions because they cannot come true from seed, such as scented thymes and flavored mints. Some require fall sowing of fresh seed, such as sweet cicely and angelica, and these become available in August or September.

About medicinal herbs: Archeological evidence dates the medicinal use of herbs back 60,000 years to the Neanderthals. 85% of the world’s population employ herbs as medicines, and 40% of pharmaceuticals in the U.S. contain plant-derived materials. Fewer than 10% of higher plant species have been investigated for their medicinal components. Interest in traditional herbal remedies continues to grow.

Using herbs: Drying herbs at home is not difficult. Whole leaves retain their flavor at least a year. To substitute fresh herbs for dried in cooking, use triple the dried quantity called for in a recipe.

White Mustard (Sinapis Alba Nemagon) – This variety of white mustard is used for cover crops with outstanding nematode suppression. It hinders the life cycle of nematode larvae and acts as a natural biofumigant when turned in to the soil just before flowering. This high protein forage crop has high nitrogen content and increase soil tilth.

The deep root system does a great job of re-utilizing nutrients that may have filtered past the root zone of crop plants. The tap root grows to a depth of three feet which helps break up soil and scavenge nutrients. Use Nemagon white mustard seed as a winter cover crop in home gardens, crop rotations and vineyards. It provides natural weed suppression, increased tilth, and increased organic soil matter. Nemagon is high in sulfer, which can become available to the subsequent crop when the mustard is incorporated in to the soil. Do not permit the mustard to go to seed or it could become a field impurity.
