Well, i grow Tulsi. It's nto only my daighter's name, but it's also a reletive of the basil plant. They cal it "holy Basil" in India. Amost every home in india grows Tulsi, they use it for pooja (prayers) and such. It's also great for cooking & makes a yummy tea with plenty of health benefits. I have planted heirloom vegetables of all kinds. It's fun stuff.
I have grown odd potatoes, can't remember all the names, some of them do well down here in ga. I also have a few orchids. They have not bloomed in a long time, since i moved though. I think they are pissed with their new location. I also have some Irish Shamrocks that were brought back from ireland for me. I've seen them in plant shops though, so i don't think they're too rare. But, it was a great gift & they grow real well near my window & bloom a whole bunch in spring.
