Hi Garret, Terp is right i did open a topic on this site regarding vegetable and Herbs a while ago, please see link below

 

http://www.livingincebuforums.com/ipb/inde...55&hl=seeds

 

I've since tried growing peppermint , thyme and rosemary from seed, but with little success, our spring onions went well, I still have quite an assorted amount of vegetable seeds, they all came from Queensland Australia, so should be better suited to this climate than seeds from my Home Country England, if you or anyone else need any of the seeds below just ask there all approaching there use by date, so I'd rather give them out than see them wasted.

 

 

Pumpkin [Jarrahdale], Cucumber [crystal apple], Chives, Cucumber [Richmond river], Bean [blue lake], Pigeon pea, Rossela, Rock melon, Silverbeet

Pumpkin squash, Night sented jasmine, Parsley [triple curl], Parsley [kaebug], Pumpkin [Waitham B], Tomato [black Russian], Beetroot [Detroit], beetroot [chiogga], Capsicum, Pie Melon

Talking about herbs, I've spruced up my collection! I'm sooo happy!! My newest herbs are dill, celery, coriander, rosemary and sweet basil to name a few. I got them from a garden show here in Jaro, Iloilo City. Last week we bought a curry tree, tea tree, citronella grass and black pepper. Also got some wormwood and echinacea earlier. The thing that I really wanted was the curly parsley and she ran out of those! :biggrin_01: The woman selling them specializes in organic herbs and she's growing them in Bacolod.

 

Will try to get some pictures of my herbs tomorrow. :D My Thai basil is growing like crazy!

 

The garden show in Jaro lasts until February 5. Half of the town plaza is just full of plants! Hubby even got his coffee tree! lol It's amazing to just walk through all the plants they have on sale there. It's just by luck that we stumbled to this herb seller.

just a touch off topic but misty mentioning a tea tree reminded me of it ... the other day i saw a show and they had a bit on there about some guy who started some cookie company somewhere making shortbread cookies with tea in them .. i mean just basically chopped up bits of tea leaves.. i laughed at first cause it made me think of other things that people have put in to cookies or more likely brownies :biggrin_01: ... but then i got to thinking.. hey those may be pretty good .. don't know where to buy his or the brand i never saw that part of the show .. but should be easy enough to come up with a recipe of one's own

They look very healthy, I'm not having much luck growing from seed, although to be honest I'm not giving the plants as much care as I should,however now that I've finished and furnished our third apartment, the place wont be getting messed up with mixing concrete etc so i can alot an area specifically for herbs, does anyone know a place in Cebu that sells potted herbs?

The Tea Tree (or Ti Tree) that Misty has pictured isn't the plant that is cultivated for the drinking of tea. It is actually an Australian plant which they extract the oils from the leaves. You may have seen it around. Tea Tree Oil. It is used as an antiseptic and antifungal.
