Did you know we produce a wide variety of herbs?
There are over 15 different types of herbs in the garden in Ballybeg Greens.
In the next few weeks, we shall showcase some of the wonderful fresh produce we have growing in the garden and how you can available of this throughout the winter months.
First, we shall look at Lemon Verbena
This lovely shrub has leaves that release their refreshing fragrance each time they’re touched, making this herb a good choice for planting near outdoor living areas or paths, where you can enjoy its lemony scent.
Ideas for Dishes:
- Lemon Verbena Pesto – try it instead of using Basil? Sounds delicious and will create a ray of sunshine on those dark wintry evenings.
- Herbal Tea – try it instead of using Mint? Add a slice of lemon to it and you will keep those pesky germs at bay.
- Gin & Tonic – infuse some leaves into a shaker with the G&T, the lemon works wonders with the Gin.
