Autumn brings welcome relief from the heat of Summer. It is traditionally a harvesting time.


Herbs such as chillies, basil, echinacea, turmeric and ginger are now ripe and ready to harvest and preserve.

Yummy Basil Pesto

Make some pesto from the basil plants that will soon be going to seed, this can then be stored in the freezer for winter long flavour.

Dig Those Roots

Turmeric and ginger can be dug and either stored in the freezer or a cool dark airy cupboard. Or if you do not have frost in your area you can leave some root in the ground and harvest when needed.

Immune Stimulating Herbs

Autumn is the time to prepare your immune herbs for use through the winter months. Tincture those herbs that will soon be dying back for use through winter. If you don't have them growing use dried herbs to create some immune building tinctures. Get creative and blend some herb teas from the large range of dried herbs available to have on hand to bring relief to cold and flu symptoms.

Elderberry Syrup for Anti Viral & Immunity Benefits

Elderberry syrup is a great way to get the benefits of elderberries in a delicious way. It is simple to make and you only really need three ingredients; elderberries, water and sugar (or honey).

Planting in Autumn

Time to plant calendula, chamomile, chervil, coriander, kale and Asian greens. Autumn is a pleasurable time to garden and can be a great time to start a herb and vegetable garden.

Memories of Summer

It is the perfect time to harvest and dry or freeze herbs that are in abundance now, but will only be a memory of summer when winter comes around.
