The Top Medicinal Herbs for the Garden
start with plants that are not patented. It can be confusing when you are just starting your homestead herb garden, to know which herbal remedies to plant. Of all the many perennial herbs available, how do you decide which ones you need and which ones you should wait on Many herbs are patented plants with a breeder’s Trade Mark?
You can’t legally divide these plants to make new plants and you can’t pass them on to your gardening friends, even for free. As a homesteader, you will want to avoid these varieties, so that you are free to divide your plants and increase your “wealth” and homestead abundance. So set yourself up for success and just avoid patented plants on your homestead.
When you are looking for perennial herbs at your garden store, a patented plant will have a label that states that it is patented or trademarked. If it doesn’t have a label, it isn’t a patented plant, at least you should be safely able to make that assumption. If in doubt, ask.
