Have just on finished expansion of our small community garden, I want to focus on herbs in the new section. Does anybody have any suggestions for some unusual herbs?

Basil varieties, and holy basil or tulsi.

Yes I have some holy basil seeds I plan on planting

have to look both of those up, thanks

@Rugglesby I like the basil flowers which helps bush the plant and stop it going to seed. A great mouth freshener on the way to car - just don't forget to check for bits stuck to the teeth before smiling at anyone!

Oregano is a nice one and useful in tomato dishes. The different coloured thymes make for an attractive appearance. Sage is useful, too.

Is lemon balm unusual? I grow it for use as an insect repellent.

I don't have it yet, but it is on the list

There is a popular one used in Middle Eastern cuisine that I've not heard of before until recently. I can't remember what it's called unfortunately.

Fennel makes for an attractive planting and the bulb is edible as well as the seeds.
Borage is another herb that is both medicinal and pretty, also a great bee attractor.

I found some lovage in the herb section of plants this year and snagged one. I am not sure how common it is but it is new to me.
