Summer is Here

Summer brings with it that beautiful warmth and amazing growth in your garden. It’s a time to celebrate life, soak up some sunshine, and enjoy simple eating with a healthy dose of herbs!

Herbs play a big part in adding flavour to homemade pizzas, ice blocks, salads, pasta or even a delicious sangria. Bring out some Basil - the taste of summer! Add mint to fresh pineapple or watermelon slices by the pool for that crisp freshness. Chasing some heat? Chillies love the warm weather - the hot fruits add colour to the garden and spice to your meals.

Stay hydrated, and check in on your herb plants to make sure they’re happy during the heat. Keep it simple, and simply enjoy!
