barbie_q, taga san ka po? just wanna know if purple sage is actually locally available dito sa atin.
just came from cartimar yesterday. bought some herbs there and some compost. generally the same pricing with the sellers at manila seedling bank.
bought rosemary, more tarragon, swiss mint, lemon balm, and lavender there.
gonna post the repotted plants once wala nang ulan. sana di ako sipunin. di ko natiis nag repot ako ng mga binili ako and mga plants that needed repotting.
isa lang pala yung pwesto na nagbebenta ng herbs, pero practically lahat sila nagbebenta ng calamansi.
wow, finally an edit button! yay!
also bought a naniwa sharpening stone there. another toy for me in the kitchen! lol.
sorry, mga walang mga pangalan mga pwesto ng mga nagbebenta ng halaman. you'll know when you see it naman. herbs lang karamihan ng binebenta talaga nila.Anong name ng store na nagbebenta ng herbs sa cartimar?
uwi ako this week...baka makadaan ako dun.
cartimar isn't hard to find. you turn right on cartimar street on taft then you turn again then left then right. you'll see the shops that sell the plants.Thanks. Sana makapunta ako dun.
dami den iba't ibang mga binebenta dito. too bad i didn't have enough time to go through them all since i only had half a day to get to what i need to do.
purple basil is edible. if it smells like basil, looks like basil and tastes like basil then it's basil. lol.Merong purple basil! Kaso di ko kasi alam kung edible din yun kaya hindi ko binili.
there are dozens of varieties of basil. i have about six kinds in seed form. only growing holy basil, thai basil, lemon basil and sweet basil at the moment. super precious ang iba kong seeds kaya di ko ginagamit agad. lol.
mahal ang nabili mong herbs, 3 for 100 lang yan dapat. pero depende den sa laki. rosemary mahal talaga dahil mabagal lumaki at lagi ako namamatayan. pero malakas na loob ko kse i've been able to keep one rosemary plant alive for close to 1.5 years now. i have added two more since then and they're growing nicely. mahirap sa rosemary ay ang spidermites and black aphids. kelangan mo talga paliguan ng pesticide kung gusto mo mabuhay halaman mo.
basil, parsley, dill, and many other herbs are just annuals. they live for about a year and flower then die. pero parsley is a biennial (two years), they flower on their second year, just like their cousins the carrot. dill will live for more than two years, basta the kind that are tall and grassy so long as you trim them down severely but not too severely na di na mabubuhay ha! lol.
mas mura sa cartimar, centris and manila seedling kesa sa salcedo and legaspi market. pero bihira ako makakita ng oregano (not italian, not cuban) na binebenta don. gourmet's lang nagbebenta non na live, including marjoram. kaya bili na agad pag may nahanap. mas mahal nga lang pero no choice ka, chaka maganda naman tubo.
then thyme square lang meron ng golden oregano.
basil is very easy to grow from cuttings. rosemary is quite hard as they're woody.
purple basil ko na kimg strain ay green na green na! hahahahaha!

may burgundy okra ka pa pala ichigo eh. hehe.
yup, kaso isa lang. pinahinog ko, may nakatabi na tayong buto.nope. iba yan. namunga na ba yung sayo?
My sister cooks the basil, pero lately nung nagstart umulan, napansin ko nagkaron ng infestation. yoko naman ipesticide baka makalason sa tao... other options maybe?
haay, *** isang basil plant ko may ganyang peste. baka mahawa yung iba kaya nilagay ko yung pot na may peste sa quarantine site (aka malapit sa basurahan)
