  1. I live in Palmetto,Fl. from Oct. 10th thruMay ,I have a nice floral garden and would like to add a herbal patch l\or as many different cullenary plants that I can find , that will grow at my location. Would you be kind enough to help me. I love using herbs in my cooking but have a hard time sometimes picking out the proper type for the particular dish, As I already mentioned I would lide to grow my own fresh plants.
    Thank you
