If you haven't heard of skirret, it's a member of the carrot family with edible roots but it's perennial so you just dig around the plant and break off a root or two when you need it. It was popular in Europe in the Middle Ages. I got the seeds from the USDA to evaluate so all I ask in return for these plants is a report next fall about how they did in your garden and some basic info about your garden (soil moisture, sun/shade, zone, etc.) These are still pretty small (2 inch pots.)

The scented geraniums are of the following types: eucalyptus, nutmeg, lemon, strawberry, and mint beauty. I'm not sure how many of each I have but I will try to fill requests. They have been in the shadehouse all summer and somewhat crowded so they are a bit leggy but they all tolerate pruning quite well and grow readily from the cuttings. (which is why I have so many extras.)

One thing I am particularly looking for in trade is Salvia dorisiana (fruit scented sage.) I had one for years and grew many cuttings from it but this summer both of my plants died rapidly and the cuttings I took from them didn't make it either. I think our water has high salt levels this year due to the drought and it's been hard on my plants.

Hi, Kat. What is the zone range for the scented geraniums?

I'm not sure, there seem to be a lot of opinions in the PlantFiles but I bring them inside before it freezes.

Scented geraniums are grown as annuals in zones 4 and 5, and they are perennials in Zones 8 and higher.
