Canned Emergency-Storage Culinary Herb Seeds Can
« on: November 18, 2009, 04:25:15 PM »
Welcome to the forum and thanks for agreeing to come here and answer our questions. 


I had a question about the "Canned Emergency-Storage Culinary Herb Seeds Can".  I was just curious if all the herbs in the can can be grown in pretty much any zone or just some in certain zones. Obviously, if grown indoors then it basically doesn't matter. Although that brings up another question. Can all these be grown indoors? Which are perennials? Thank you so much

Hi Roswell. Thanks for the welcome and the tough questions.  :-\

The culinary herb seeds are new and so I am not really up to speed on them enough to respond authoritatively. But now I will learn more, just as you will, when we get answers from our supplier. I'll respond here when I hear back from them.

Sorry for the delay, Roswell. I finally coaxed a response out of my supplier:

The good thing about herbs is that they are very hardy and do well in almost all climates.  They are almost like weeds in that way.  As far as growing them indoors, they do very well grown that way.  I have known several people over the years who have kept a mini herb garden in their kitchen window.
 
As far as which ones are perennials, they all are accept for the basils, dill, and parsley.  The basils are annual, dill is annual and parsley is a biennial.
 
I hope this answers the question.  Let me know if you have any more and I will try to respond more quickly.

An additional note on basil, it will reseed itself in mild climates.  In cold just let it got to seed, collect the seeds by stripping them off when dry.  Store in a ziplock bag and just toss on the ground after a rain in spring time after frost danger passes.  You get so many seeds from a few plants it is insane.  You can just through a few hundred on the area you want basil and if only 3% make it you still end up thinning and you get only the strongest for your next seed crop.
