It was an absolute delight to welcome BBC Northampton’s Helen Blaby back to my allotment this week. In the second of my monthly series on gardening and grow-you-own, I’d put the kettle on to make some tea from fresh herbs grown at the allotment.
Under the warming sun we sipped on mint tea (both garden and peppermint), enjoyed some lemon balm tea and experimented with fennel. The less said about the rosemary tea the better!
Tune into Helen’s show on BBC Northampton from 12 every weekday or listen online , I’m usually on the third Wednesday every month.
