      Hi Kristine, if you make 8 rows maybe 10 inches apart each stretching 4 feet across the bed then you’d be able to plant the whole set in the 4 by 8 foot bed and kinda keep track of what you have, what works and what doesn’t. if you just go 2 feet with each packet then you could double the number of species but it would be pretty tight. there’s nothing wrong with planting both the butterfly and the honeybee herbs in the same garden. richo

      really depends on your facilities there. Most herbaceous perennials like these can be started in an unheated greenhouse in April in a z 6. If no greenhouse, then better to wait until later on in the spring. richo

      Hello Olivia,
      I have seen comfrey and tulsi growing in Hawaii. The others I have no particular experience with. If you check the zone designations, safest to pick seeds for plants that are listed to Zone 10.

      Hi Alexander,
      Yes, even the perennial herb hyssop is good from zone 3 to 10, so your Z 6 is squarely in there. Lemon Bergamot would be native to your area. Greek mullein is an annual and an easy grow in most temperate gardens. We’ve chosen these herbs for wide-ranging success and if you’re interested, bore into the individual monographs on each of them to look at planting times and preferred habitats.

      Hi Berryl, The temperate tulsi is strangely enough a standby in tropical gardens–it is an extremely functional bee plant and is your best choice for a companion plant in a food/medicinal garden in the tropics. The others might work, it really does depend on many factors, but they are pointed at temperate gardens.
