Five "must have" in your garden... Empty Five "must have" in your garden...

Ok I am an herb know nothing! A local greenhouse has some very nice herbs started, and I would like to grow some for my wife, but she knows no more about them than I do…

I know your first question might be, what we want to use them for, eating or healing or both. The answer is both; I would like to grow a couple that we could preserve for year round use for seasoning. We would also like a few for medicinal purposes.

I am a type II diabetic, is there an herb for that?
My wife would like to lose a few pounds, herb for that?
Perhaps help with stress?

Maybe if you could give me your top five “must have” herbs I could raise. I would also need to know how to preserve them, or do you just bring in a pot in the winter?

Please forgive any stupidity or over simplification in my question.

If you think this would have been better in the garden section, please feel free to move it.

I know that someone more knowlegable than me will be along soon to give better answers, but one of the things I'm learning is that a lot of culinary herbs can also be used for medicinal purposes. Medicine Mom and Parsons Wife are both knowledgable in this are, and so I'm sure they can answer the specifics for you.

Never seen a St John's Wort plant, seen the pills @ the drug store, but never the plant, would you dry the leaves or eat the root or?

I got a St John's Wort plant last year at Lowes I believe. It may have been Home Depot.
