An underrated herb, the celery-flavoured leaves of lovage (Levisticum officinale) are used in salads, soups and stews, the seeds in meat dishes and casseroles, the stems as a vegetable and the roots grated to make tea or for use in salads.
Sage - fast-growing ways, beautiful blooms, and a flavor deer find distasteful. Once established, plants shrug off drought, although it's wise to keep plants well-hydrated through the hottest parts of summer if you want a steady supply of supple foliage.
SAGE: burn sage in home office every month or so to cleanse the air. What you don't use, let dry out on newspapers and bunch dried bouquet tightly together with string for burning. It's a beautiful, clean smell and really seems to remove stale smells.
