A Slytherin is, among other things, resourceful. While we are known to excel at potions, a closely related subject matter is herbology, important not only for potions work, but also for basic survival– this latter matter a subject of particular interest to Slytherins. Therefore, we’ll be starting a periodic category today focused around useful plant life, its lore, how to grow and how to use it. We’ll call it “In the Garden”
We’ll go mostly alphabetically, unless we skip something and are reminded, or there comes along some other reason to mess around with the order. For A’s, we’ll be addressing the following:
Amaranth, Agrimony, Aloe, Allspice, Alkanet, Almond, Angelica Root, Anise, Apple, Apricot, Arnica, Arrowroot, Arugula, Ash, Asparagus, Asphodel, and Aster. Any suggestions for further “A” plants of utilitarian nature are welcomed.
The first article, Amaranth, should be coming soon. ^_^
Note: Edited 5 Jan 2010 to add a few “A” plants, and start including links.
