Jekka McVicar's Blog has more about growing each of these https://www.jekkas.com/blogs/jekkas-blog...97effee0af
Most of them I've never grown and only the Aloe would I think of as an Indoor plant.

I have 1, 5 and 10. Possibly 6 if its the same as the lemongrass they sell in supermarkets. 8 I've grown but its died. 9 - maybe as I've grown a few scented pelargoniums.

Need to find out more about 2,3,4,7

I tried growing lemongrass and Vietnamese coriander last year, but my conservatory killed them off  Sad

Hoping for better temperature control this year (and more time spent in the conservatory as a result) so I might try again. I'd also like to try cardamom, as I love it in curries!

I got most of my herb plants from Hook's Green Herbs - nice healthy plants, well packaged, though they don't sell many of the tropical varieties.
How much veg and wildlife can I pack into a 6m x 8m garden in suburban Cambridge? Let’s find out!  Smile
