Even More Herbs...

On a "must...grow...saffron" reverie this evening, I've stumbled across a new favourite website! The Green Chronicle Shop sells all kinds of garden products, but what really caught my attention was its selection of seeds. Organic veg and herb seeds are mostly around £1 a packet, and they have loads of unusual varieties I haven't seen elsewhere. And sensible P&P costs too! I bought myself some purslane, chervil, sweet cicely and wild garlic! Exciting!

The Green Chronicle main website has loads of great gardening info and news too, as well as big sections on food, recipes and health. Well worth a look.

Then I got carried away and went to Victoriana Nursery for some samphire and chamomile, since the ones I bought last year didn't survive the winter, some winter savory, and an 'Eau de Cologne' plant, just for fun. Sounds fascinating...

Still didn't get any saffron - it's out of season. Will try again in the summer...

Sweet Cicely is the one you can use to sweeten fruit instead of sugar isn't it - I've been looking for that!

I'm a big fan of Victoriana, but sadly their prices are not nearly so good...

I haven't heard that about Sweet Cicely, but it sounds like a great idea!
