Anethum graveolens

Dill

Why dill?  I love dill, it will be in every garden I ever have.  Not only for its culinary uses, but also for its medicinal benefits.  Google it, it's good for you.  This particular dill originates from Dauphin, MB.  For those of you that aren't aware, that is where Canada's National Ukranian Festival is held beginning of August.  It's also where I grew up.  Oh the food, mmm mmm good!   Dill in everything.

Argemone polyanthemos

Crested Prickly Poppy

Although we've had these survive the winter, even with no snow cover, treat as a self sowing annual.  They survived in Okotoks in the front rock garden.

Site carefully, this is one prickly plant from top to bottom.   Seeds are not fun to harvest.  

It sure is pretty though, and a favorite of mine.

Gilia capitata

A delicate airy annual, great for pots and window baskets.  Covered in tiny mauve blooms with peacock blue anthers mid July into August.  Dead heading will produce more blooms especially if the weather holds into September. 

I prefer to toss some seeds into a pot, water it in and let nature do her thing.  Couldn't be any easier than that.

Ocimum tenuiflorum (syn. O. sanctum) Holy Basil or Tulsi

This is one herb that my home will never be without. Wonderful licorice flavor and scent. The flavor and scent are good enough reason to grow this basil, the bonus is the effect of this herb. New Chapter produces this in a gel cap form and one can buy it at any health store or at Planet Organic. "Holy Basil, has for thousands of years been revered as 'Tulsi' in Ayurvedic medicine. 'Tulsi' means 'The Incomparable One', which is the reality of this majestic herb. ........ 'Holy Basil delivers nutrients to the mind necessary for the experience of enlightenment.' If you are experiencing stress in your life, take Holy Basil. I highly recommend it. I've found that the home grown plant delivers the same effects as the pill form. If you need more information I urge you to read up on this incredible herb, or contact me, I can not say enough good about this herb.

Talinum paniculatum - Jewels of Opar

This is an interesting little plant. Used in Chinese medicine and can also be used as a substitute for spinach (I've not tried it myself). Group many plants together in plantings, flowers are bloom on airy stalks, they are small but are nice massed together, especially with the red bead-like buds and fruits. Bees love them.
