    I like growing stuff and this year I am going to grow two pots of herbs to supply me with fresh extra flavouring for meals and cups of tea, for free. All year!

    I thought, if anyone else wants to join in with me, please grow your own pots of herbs and share photos.

    I'm going to sort mine out over the next month and they're going to include:

    1) Herbs for dry container (needs less watering) - rosemary, chamomile (for tea), sage, thyme and chives.

    2) Herbs for wetter container (needs a bit more watering) - basil and mint (for mojitos!)

    If you fancy it, get cracking in March and April and share a photo.

    I'll make it into a competition with a £20 Amazon vouchers for the person who can care for the best looking pot/s of herbs and two runners up of £5 Amazon voucher. The person who posts the best photo and get the most rep, wins!!

    FLOWER POWER!

    Ooo I'd be up for that. I love growing basil. So tasty.


    However chamomile tea tastes like stuffing and that s just wrong.
