Asian Herbs and Spices
Asian herbs and vegetable are used widely in stir fry dishes and in asian cooking in general. Common asian vegetables such as Bok Choy are not difficult to grow in the home garden. Asian Herbs such as lemon grass are also easy to grow.
Some of the more popular Asian Herbs that can be grown in Australian gardens include Thai Basil, Gotu Kola and the Curry Leaf tree. Galangle (Languas galangal or greater galangle), Salad Rocket and turmeric are others.
Although these herbs are usually available at asian green grocers as well as markets it is well worth trying to grow many of these in the home garden, especially if you cook a lot of Asian recipes and are looking for fresh herbs.
Many of these herbs are from tropical and sub tropical climates and as such require a warm climate and plenty of moisture. In warmer areas this is fairly easy, however in cooler climates many of these herbs can be grown in pots or containers in a sunny position protected from frosts and cold winds.
