Examples, are First Aid, Cold and Flu, Relaxation, Woman's or Child care, Rejuvenation, or Bath care, etc. Also, Are you interested in a perennial or annual garden? Are you looking for advise on more exotic medicinals like Monkshood / Wolfsbane ? In general, I would like to add Mullein, Calendula, Chamomile, Echinacea, Feverfew, Red Clover, Valerian, Lavender, Chicory, Rosemary, Fennel, Thyme, Parsley, Sage, Bergamot, Cayenne and Garlic, Garlic, Garlic.
Good luck and please keep permies abreast, post your results.
