I don't have lot of space to grow the plants, but out of interest, I just started growing mint this summer. Though, I took a course in gardening at Hyderabad Horticulture society, It took me a long time to understand the Canadian climatic conditions, seasons, various plants, soils, fertilizers etc., I feel there is close connection between gardening and cooking. Mint happens to be my favourite herb. It's so versatile, you can use it in various dishes, use it as a garnish , make teas, add in lemonade..... It's strong aromatic flavour can transform any dish into something extrodinary.
