The seed is harvested when fully ripe and is then dried and stored in airtight jars. An essential oil from the seed is used as a food flavouring.

A traditional place to plane spearmint is underneath a dripping yard faucet. Use good soil. Spearmint likes rich, well-drained soil. A pH value of 6.5 to 7.0 is best for growing mint. Soil additives, such as compost or manure, are good for mint. Decide between cuttings or seed. Many gardeners have trouble propagating spearmint from seeds. Mint is easy to grow from cuttings. Water frequently. Spearmint thrives in moist soil but do not over water. Water at regular intervals for best results. Harvest when the spearmint starts to bloom. Remove up to a third of the spearmint plant, branch and leaves. The remaining plant will re-grow for later harvest.

Dichorisandra thrysiflora, Blue Ginger, is an exotic perennial from Brazil. It is rapidly becoming the darling of rare plant collectors because of the intense purple-blue colour of its flowers.
Blue Ginger grows best in shade in warm climates. You can also treat this exotic beauty as an indoor specimen. It will be completely at home in an atrium or spa garden. In these conditions it can be fed with soluble fertilisers fortnightly in the warm months of the year. Keep the soil barely moist, watering only when dry to the touch.  Blue Ginger can reach a height of 2.5 metres with a spread of 1 metre.   The plant spreads by means of an underground suckering stem, similar to that of bamboo although not as invasive. When planting it is good practice to bury the stems deeper than you would for other plants. This encourages sucker growth and results in a more bushy plant. The more stems there are, the more flowers are produced. Foliage is a lustrous, deep, dark green.
These plants need to be handled carefully when planting as the flowers and the stems are quite brittle.
Another lovely feature of this plant is the lack of insect or disease problems.

Grass jelly is an Asian dessert commonly served in China, Taiwan and Southeast Asia. In some parts of Asia this dessert is also known as leaf jelly. Generally, manufacturers sell grass jelly in cans, and you typically cut the grass jelly into pieces prior to eating. Grass jelly is made from the leaves and stalks of the mesona chineensis plant.
A 330-g serving of grass jelly contains 44 g of carbohydrates, and 2 g of these carbohydrates come from dietary fiber. The remainder of the carbohydrates come from sugar. Grass jelly is, therefore, higher in dietary sugar and carbohydrates. Each 330-g serving of grass jelly also contains 2 g of protein. Grass jelly does not contain any fat, vitamins or minerals. Because of this, the calorie count of this dessert remains relatively low. However, despite this dessert's lack of fat, the dessert does have a rich flavor that results from the sugar content of the carbohydrates.

These herbaceous perennials spread by underground rhizomes, often forming dense clumps of multiple stems. Large, simple leaves are borne on either side of the thick green stems.  Its attractive flowers make it a desirable ornamental plant. The flowers are intensely fragranced, reminiscent of jasmines.

Vanilla planifolia is the source of vanilla, one of the most popular flavours in the world, and one of the most valuable spice crops.
The vanilla orchid Vanilla planifolia grows wild in tropical forests and belongs to one of the oldest and largest groups of flowering plants – the orchids (Orchidaceae). Of all the orchids, the vanillas (members of the Vanilla genus) are the only ones that produce an agriculturally valuable crop, and 95% of the world’s traded vanilla pods are derived from just one species – V. planifolia.
After pollination, vanilla pods develop over four weeks and are then harvested, dried and cured to produce the distinctive flavour we know and love. The pods may be used whole, or split and the tiny seeds scraped out, to infuse cream and custard-based sauces.
Vanilla planifolia is a tropical vine, which can reach a length of over 30 m. It has thick, fleshy stems and greenish flowers that open early in the morning and are pollinated by bees. The flowers have only a slight scent, with no element of the vanilla flavour or aroma. Once pollinated, the ovaries swell and develop into fruits called ‘pods’ similar to long, thin runner beans over a period of four weeks. The pods contain thousands of tiny black seeds.
