Where are you in WV? I just "disciplined" a big patch of costmary, but I still have a big plant left. I had a hard time locating this herb about 5 years ago, but now it grows big quickly in this climate and our soil. I love the minty smell of the leaves and have put them in some of my older books to repel silver-fish, which eat the glue. Let me know if you are near Jefferson County and maybe we can arrange for you to visit the herb garden.
