WANTED: Biblical Garden

Nalani(8A Oakhills Ca)November 18, 2005

Hello all I am wanting to start a biblical garden. And I do know that back in biblical times there were lots of herbs grown. I am interested in all and if any seeds that anyone has extra. I am really excited about this and I have the winter to get everything prepared. And since I have a large family of seven, they will be used and appreciated. I grow my own tomatoes now and sweet and hot peppers which my kids love. Happy hoildays to everyone who reads this post and God bless you all.

Nalani, you might do a search on Âbiblical herbs & post specific wants on the seed exchange forum. Some of these should be pretty easy to get ahold of, although taste may depend on your palate. I have garlic I could spare, but I still need to find the other seeds you were looking for. Here are a few:

chicory, lettuce, watercress, sorrel, and dandelions.
Balm, Frankincense, Camphor, Cinnamon and Cassia, Saffron

I am not planting a garden such as yours, but I have not found the Frankincense. Cinnamon needs to be obtained fresh, & montosogardens has seeds from time to time. I do not have saffron, but now & then I see sources on eBay.
Certain varieties of camphor trees grow throughout CA. If you peel the seeds & put them in a paper towel for a long time they will sprout.
