Since we have a section on Gardening, how about sharing and giving some our seeds, seedlings, plants among us and spread some joy of gardening.

I have some herbs in the garden that I would like to propagate and give away if anyone is interested.

1) Thai Basil - I use them for Thai basil chicken, Taiwanese 3 Cup Chicken or can also use it for Hakka Lui Cha

2) Dill - usually added into fish dishes in Western cuisine.

Sorry I don't have photos of my Dill on my pc to post here.

3) Indian Borage or Lemon Balm - bite a piece or two whenever I have a sore throat.

4) Costus - with vibrant red bloom

Just pm or leave a message here then give me about 2 weeks to propagate the herbs (item 1-3) before collecting. The costus are ready for collection as I have propagated a few pots.
