How to Grow Basil

Basil leaves are used in cooking, imparting their anise (licorice) flavor to dishes. Many cultivars are available with different nuances of taste, size, and appearance, including cultivars with cinnamon, clove, lemon, and lime overtones, as well as purple-leaved types such as ‘Dark Opal’ and ‘Rubin’. One of the most popular herbs in the garden, basil adds fine flavor to tomato dishes, salads, and pesto. How to grow Plant seed outdoors when frosts are over and the ground is warm, start indoors in individual pots, or buy bedding plants. If you start plants indoors, heating cables are helpful, since this is a tropical plant that doesn’t take kindly to cold. Grow a few basil plants in containers so you can bring them indoors before fall frost. Connaissances. Jardin et jardinage. Gardening. GARDEN. Gardening. Jardin. Techniques du jardin. Gardening.

Nous avons tous un lilas au jardin, un Syringa vulgaris pourpre, violet ou parme, un lilas vigoureux au feuillage sombre et au parfum printanier, un lilas si naturel et évident que nous oublions que, du Moyen Orient, il lui a fallu, de boutures en semis, de croisades en reconquista, plusieurs siècles pour gagner nos terres septentrionales.

Le jardin, c'est tout !

Il est devenu si naturel que, jardiniers ou non, nous en avons tous un, planqué au fond d'un massif ou caché derrière la remise, de quoi faire un bouquet mi-mai pour remplacer le muguet qui sombre dans le vase sur l'appui de fenêtre. Il pousse facilement, ne demande rien à personne. Dans notre société où la valeur se juge au prix payé, sa simplicité gratuite lui vaut beaucoup trop d'indifférence.

If someone were to tell you that they had a technology — a weed actually — that could sequester huge amounts of carbon permanently while lifting villagers out of poverty by providing both protein-rich food and super-insulated building materials, you might start to wonder if they were, well, smoking a different weed.

Can 1 miracle plant solve the world's 3 greatest problems?

But it appears that one retired building contractor, Bill Loftus, has actually come upon a brilliant application of the fast-growing, carbon-sucking plant known as Kenaf. Kenaf is in the Hibiscus family and is thus related to both cotton and okra. Originally from Africa, this 4,000-year-old crop was used for its fiber. It has the astonishing ability to grow up to 14 feet in one growing season, yielding 6-10 tons of fiber per acre and making it a great source of pulp for paper. But researchers have also discovered (PDF) a corresponding ability of Kenaf to inhale huge quantities of our most abundant global warming gas — CO2. But its not enough to simply absorb CO2.
