FLOWERS & HERBS IN THE GARDEN


Flowers

Many of you will be aware that Grace and Flavour is now successfully growing flowers as a crop. Your fabulous support last year has led to an expansion of the garden area given over to flowers this year.

Indeed the range being tried has increased hugely. We are experimenting with different selections of blooms that will provide flowers for as much of the year as possible. This should hopefully result in more varied bunches being available. A beautiful reward for a mornings work on Saturday!

These are a lot of the flowers being grown in small quantities and some may take a bit of time to actually produce blooms.




Herbs

The herb bed has been extended this year in order to try and produce more, parsley, Coriander and dill.

Hopefully this time there will be some left after the slugs have had their fill. Please DO use the herbs, they can really add so much flavour to your cooking!

Try something new next time you are at the garden. I am usually there if help is needed but feel free to crop some on your own and leave a donation.




If you have any comments or suggestions please find me in the garden or use the contact us form at the bottom of the page to let me know.
