Medicinal Bed Growth

Ten months ago we visited Hazelwood Herb Farm to pick out some medicinal herbs for our garden (Post here!) and planted a bunch of them together in one of the beds near the hazelnut trees. They grew fairly well last summer, but what has really impressed us is the growth they put on this spring! Check out the before and after on this little milk thistle:

We can’t believe how massive it has gotten!! The rest of the plants – St. John’s Wort, Lady’s Mantle, verbena, wormwood, skullcap and betony – all look fantastic. I’m excited to seed harvest this year and spread some of these plants around. How is everyone else’s garden coming along?? This is my favourite time of year πŸ–€
