    I was wonding if anyone has heard of white/faulse dittany (dictamnus albus), which gives of flammable gas which can combust on hot days. I am growing some but wondered if any body had a photos or a description of what a healthy seedling should look like as I can only find photos and descriptions of the adult plant.

    My friends say I'm mad, I guess they're not wrong

    A short article on introducing herb seedlings to the outdoors:

    White Dittany does nicely in a well drained pot, especially if you add a little lime when planted and keep it in direct sunlight. It can be easily propogated it with cuttings and can be used in place of oregano when cooking.

    Probably ought to avoid planting it near a bail of hay and gasoline.
