Hmong Herbs

For the special Hmong herbs. The reason why they are special is that these herbs are not native to the area that I live in. Some adapted and some have not. Most of the transplants and cuttings root better when it’s cooler and colder. These are planted in containers.

Also, plant your vegetables with their companions so they all thrive together. For warm season, peppers!

For a more detailed on what and when to plant check my warm and cool seasons here.
