As a single person house, sometimes I don’t use up all my herbs. Here are some alternate uses:
- Make a display – My herbs bolted so to keep them alive, I had to prune them back. They looked and smelt divine with my lavender
- Dry them – Herbs also look beautiful when hanging up to dry. So decorate your house with them, and they will come in handy when cooking over the slower-growing months, too!
- Make tea with them – Mint tea, with real mint, is divine. Try using different types of mint for different strength and flavour
- Swap them! Think of all your friends, neighbours and family who also cook, and you’ll realise there’s no reason to let your herbs go to waste. Even better, encourage people around you to grow something for you to share. Contribute to your community, make new friends, improve the air quality in your little space, and enjoy BIG flavours. Win, win, win, WIN!
