Spice up your barbeques, salads, ice creams, cocktails and summer punches with fragrant summer herbs.


1.   Basil                            Great on salads, a summer pesto spread on bread or in Tequila cocktails

2.   Borage                        The pretty blue flowers look great floating in a glass of Pimms.

3    Chervil                         Has a mild sweet aniseed flavour that works well with fish

4.   Chives                         Chopped up finely tastes wonderful in salads & great with potatoes.

5.   Coriander                   Tasty sprinkled on chicken or fish dishes

6.   English Lavender      Try delicious ice cream and sponge cakes made with lavender

7.   Mint                             Really versatile and adds great flavour to burgers, Mojitos and salsas.

8.   Oregano                     Great on grilled tomatoes or grilled fresh prawns

9.   Rosemary                   Good with all meats. Add to oils and vinegar.

10. Thyme                         Great sprinkled on beef with garlic, or chicken with garlic & lemon
