I hope you don't mean digging up Bob. I don't know what type of tree Bob is. Perhaps you mean the spawn of Bob. Maybe the next time he blooms we can collect a Bob seed. That would be fun.
A wonderful discussion with Redmyth led to a few new plants, including some herbs.
Yes rumi that conversation certainly got me thinking about the wonderful healing properties herbs have....
Calendula (French marigold) = Antiseptic
Ivy & Thyme = Expectorants
Lungwort = Coughs but also gastrointestinal and kidney problems.
Lavender = Burns, also aids sleep
Valerian = Herbal sedative.
Milk thistle = Liver tonic
Red clover = Menopausal symptoms
Clary sage = Antiseptic, carminative and astringent plus aids PMS
Garlic = Heart disease
The list goes on and on and its not just herbs, healing properties can be found in many trees, shrubs and vegetable.
