Last week I was down on my allotment checking on the seedlings, when to my surprise, I saw some kind soul had left some heads of Lilac on our table. They smelt divine. I love these little gifts I sometimes get on the allotment. I don't know where they come from. Once I was given a branch of rosemary as long as my arm!
Bugle was once thought to be the most popular vulnerary but it isn't one I learnt about at University. At least not to my recollection (and let's be honest, my recollection is poor at best). I've never spotted it before this year so perhaps it's rare. Only time will tell. Usually once you've spotted a plant and got to know it a little you start to see it everywhere! Let's hope so.
Colds and flu season is upon us. For many it’s an utterly dreaded time of year for this reason. But it doesn’t have to be. You probably think that it’s only a matter of time before you catch something.
