The Witch-Herbs of the North American Midwest are the ones that I’ve come to know and love the most.
They’re the ones I can grow at home, and they’re the plants I think of when I’m wondering if I’ll ever grow to be a gardener.
And when I grow my own, I’ve always been more interested in seeing what happens to the plants and the soil than what they look like in the photo I’ve put up.
I’m going to share some tips and tricks on how to grow the herbs I like, and if you have questions, feel free to ask in the comments below.
I’m growing my own Witch- Herbs of North America (and other herbs) in my garage.
They take up less space than other herbs and require less water than other types of herbs.
They grow quickly and produce a high quality product.

For me, I use a blend of white, red, and yellow Witch-Shebeth and the red ones I use are from the Dixie Herbs collection, which is sold by the Dixie Farms and Farmhouse stores in Florida and the South Carolina coast.
The plants are all grown in the garage.
(Image courtesy of my husband, Dave) I started growing the herbs by soaking the plant material in a mixture of red vinegar and water for a week.
After soaking the plants thoroughly, I then place the plant in a container with a tight fitting lid.
I also put the plants in a tray in the freezer for a couple of days, allowing the plants to dry.
After about two weeks, I add the plant to a pot and add a little bit of salt and pepper to it.
Then, I remove the plant from the pot, place the lid on it, and allow it to sit for at least two days.
My husband says that the witch- herbs of North American North Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee are the best and that the plant he grows is also the best.

After a couple weeks, the plants are ready to harvest.
I then put them in the refrigerator for a few days and let them dry.
After the plants have dried, I rinse the plant well with a solution of vinegar, and the plant is ready to pick.
(Image courtesy my wife, Megan) My method is fairly easy to follow, and it works great for a variety of plants.
I like to place the plants at least a few feet apart, with the roots about one foot away from the plant.
They can be planted anywhere on the house and I have also found that a garden hose or garden tray works very well.
Each plant needs about an inch of space between the top of the plant and the ground, and between the roots and the bottom of the plants.
These plants can be kept in a home garden for a year, or they can be grown in a greenhouse, or in a basement, or even a shed.
If you are growing a large variety of herbs, I highly recommend starting with the white Witch-Hempseeds, and then growing your favorites of red, yellow, and white Witch Herbs.
