My garden is organised by the wife and my mother, but I always wanted to have a herb garden. We planted it a couple of years ago and it’s going well. 

Rosemary, lemon verbena, oregano, thyme, lemon thyme, sage, marjoram, lavender, mint, and we also play some basil. It’s gone really well. The basil we plant is usually the potted ones from Tesco that are surprisingly good. I think I might have to get some new sage and thyme, but will wait until May to make that decision. The mint and marjoram grew so crazy we had to put it in pots so it didn’t take over.

In the garden is a French Rosemary that is prostrate,  I want to start some cuttings soon We also grow most of the herbs we need,  we have 4 butlers sinks that we use.

It sounds like you have a nice sized garden. Sadly mine isn’t that big. I’m hoping to move in the next couple of years to have a larger garden and maybe make a man-cave

Sort of...I took a career change back in Jan, I now look after the gardens at the Manor house,  one of the benefits is we can use as much of the walled kitchen garden that we want.

A couple of piccies just to see what we have to play with....m01100.gif

That’s going to keep you out of trouble Ice!

Tell me about it,  but there's nothing better than having your own veg served up, the taste alone compared to the age of some veg in the supermarket??

Yeah I’ve got an old farm cottage . But at the moment only grow a multitude of herbs including wild garlic . Planting some purple sprouting broccoli 

I did do potatoes and other stuff . But we have low beds and an abundance of wildlife who like to eat 🤬
