ItemDescription
Hedge The ground underneath the hedge offers food and shelter amongst leaf mould and twigs for a multitude of insects that, in turn, become a food source for birds, small mammals and amphibians.
In winter, a robin will often do bed and breakfast amongst the tufts at the base of a hedge.
Dense shrubs and hedges can hide small birds and fledglings. Dark, damp, undisturbed places provide concealment in the summer and shelter in the winter for insects.
Herbal Tea Tea that has been flavored by adding herbs such as mint or rosemary to enhance the flavour of mildly flavoured teas.
To create an herbal beverage, simply mix a small quantity of a selected herb or herbs into the tea within the tea bag as the tea steeps.
Also, empty tea bags, tea balls or strainers that hold tea are commercially available to be used as containers for both the herbs and the tea when steeping the beverage.
Herbs Herbs have been used for seasoning, medicine, and sorcery for thousands of years.
Most herbs can be grown successfully with a minimum of effort. Several are drought-tolerant, some are perennials, and many are resistant to insects and diseases.
When selecting a site to plant your herbs, keep in mind that most culinary herbs are native to the Mediterranean region and therefore prefer full sun, good air circulation, and well-drained soil.
