THYME
Thymus
HARDY PERENNIAL
FULL SUN
A beautiful aromatic scent and one of the most useful culinary seasonings. It is one of the main ingredients
of bouquet garni combined with bay leaf and parsley. It stimulates the appetite and aids digestion of fatty
food. Suits food cooked slowly in wine, particularly meat, shellfish, poultry and game. It imparts a pungent
flavor to soups, stews and stuffings. Use cautiously when picked fresh, as it is extra pungent.
Thyme has strong antiseptic properties. The tea makes an excellent gargle or mouthwash, and is an
excellent remedy for sore throats and infected gums. The essential oil is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and
used in the manufacture of toothpaste, mouthwash and gargles. A few drops of the oil added to the bath
water helps ease rheumatic pain, and it is often used in liniments and massage oils.

HARDY PERENNIAL-ZONES 2-10
SUN
16 to 24 inches x 24 inches
Fern-like leaves; tall growth. Large yellow flowers Impressive all-round natural remedies without equal. Owing to
their bitter principles, they have the reputation as general fortifiers, helping to build the body's natural resistance.
They improve digestion, circulation, and the functions of the liver, gall bladder, and kidneys. They are valuable
wound herbs for cuts and make excellent cosmetic lotions for cleansing and beautifying the skin.
Native to the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, this herb is an antiinflammatory and is sometimes used as
an arnica substitute.  It is a counterirritant.  Make a concentrated tincture of the fresh or dried flowers
(concentrated) or whole plant (somewhat weaker) and use externally, as if it were Arnica.  Yerba del Lobo
also tends to grow in association with arnica, although it is much more robust than Arnica, is taller, and tends
to form dense clumps. Gardeners like it because the plant produces an easy yearly florific display.  Plant
prefers moist, regular garden soil and part shade to full sun.

US NATIVE
WASABI
Wasabia japonica
TENDER PERENNIAL-ZONES 8-10
SHADE
Pungent green horseradish-like condiment from Japan, a must for sushi and sashimi. Myths that wasabi would not
grow outside of Japan have been firmly rebuked in recent years by American growers who are not only growing it
successfully, they are growing better wasabi than the often adulterated product sold in the stores. Traditionally
grown in beds of sand or gravel near cool mountain streams, we now know that wasabi will grow quite happily in
any moist, organic-rich soil where there is shade and protection from the summer heat -running water is not
required. After 18-24 months the rhizomes are harvested, washed, peeled and grated for fresh use. In zones colder
than zone 8, it is possible to overwinter plants by heavy mulching or by moving them indoors over winter.
