Productive slow-bolting dill with full, dense leaf shape. Compact spirals of thick leaflets surround each stem, unlike in most dill varieties, which have finer and more delicate leaves. Compared to Fernleaf, the standard for container production, Teddy is faster growing, more productive, and has a fuller plant habit with vibrant green leaves.
Best pals with potatoes and fish, it is also a great compliment to chicken and salads.

Thai Basil is a spicy, anise-liquorice flavoured basil. With their lovely purple stems and purple-veined leaves on a shiny, dark green background, these plants are not only grown for their culinary uses but also as ornamental specimens. Thai Basil is widely used in the cuisines of Southeast Asia, including Thai, Vietnamese, Lao and Cambodian cuisines. It is best when eaten raw—in fact, a plate of raw Thai Basil leaves is often served as an accompaniment to the Vietnamese pho. The plant is said to have the ability to convey good fortune to its user while also protecting him or her from evil spirits. If a leaf is placed in one's pocket, it will cause money to enter one's pocket soon thereafter.
Thyme grows best in light, dry, well-drained soil. Wonderful in Mediterranean cuisine, teas, potpourri and a key ingredient of bouquet garni. Plants do well in containers, and they're drought tolerant, so consider them for xeriscaping. Cut thyme back by a third at the end of the season to encourage lots of spring growth and flower set.
