Herbs and Edibles

A sprig of thyme over roast potatoes or a bunch of garlic chives sliced into a salad makes all the difference to the taste of your cooking. If I only had a window box for a garden, I would grow herbs. But so many of the plants that we think are ornamental are also edible –  day lily flowers for example, or oxalis tubers. Here at Samphire, we like to grow as many edibles as possible, because they spice up our lives in the most sumptuous ways.
