My much loved herb garden is my favourite part of the allotment. Situated right outside my shed, it’s the first thing you smell when you walk on to the plot.
Sometimes I can be found rolling around the herb garden, seductively running my fingers through the plants while singing Pony by Ginuwine.
I currently have Lavender, Sage, Rosemary, Lemon Thyme, Chocolate Mint, Peppermint, Lemon Balm, Camomile, Bay, Chives, Fennel, Echinacea and Russian Sage
I also grow a lot of flowers at the allotment as I love the splash of colour and am always trying to create pollinator friendly environments. Pollinators are not only necessary for productive crops but bees are quickly becoming endangered due to the overuse of pesticides and weedkillers and they need all the help we can give them in terms of food sources. My plot is always buzzing with bees and it makes me happy to know I’m doing a little bit for our furry flying friends.
