One thought on “Gardeners’ Corner

  1. I have the following plants to share:
    Crassula or Jade plant. It’s an easy-to-grow indoor succulent. New plants can be made by simply putting a leaf into compost, and roots will quickly grow.
    Borage: A herb with pretty blue flowers. Grows in all garden soils. The leaves can be added to salads. Great for bees and birds, too.
    Spider plant (I don’t think information is needed.)
    Mint: Add to salads, make mint sauce or put a few leaves in a mug and pour over boiling water for a refreshing drink. Best grown in a pot (indoors or outdoors) as it can be invasive in a border.
    Please contact me if you are interested in any of them.
    Thanks, Kate.
