It seems after such enthusiasm back in January I'm now thinking - armed with a new book to help me recognise & name all things growing around me - it makes much more sense to study twenty 'closer to home Herbs'. The previous 20 listed, I simply - really - did do the 'eeeenie meannieee mineee mo' method of choice. Although they were chosen from a local Herb nursery's website - ahem but whilst on holiday!!
(Sorry Sarah but there's always gotta be one . . . or maybe even two .. help somebody else is surely changing their mind about some things too.. lol :)
So, my previous list, a wholly naive & most ambitious list :D which now seems rather unsound is going to be read, researched & where necessary changed. Out will go the tricky ones & in the more common, closer to home ones.
Maybe the previous list can be attempted in Year II :D
- CLEAVERS Galium aparineRubiaceae, Bedstraw family
- SHEPHERDS PURSE
- HORSETAIL Equisetum ravens Equisitaceae Family
- SELF HEAL Prunella vulgaris
- RED CLOVER
- GUELDER ROSE
