FLOWERS OF PRUNUS LAUROCERASUS (cherry laurel, common laurel, English laurel
AMELANCHIER (serviceberry, juneberry,sarvisberry, shadbush……..)
We had lots of storms and huge amounts of rain and hail, thunder and lightening lately but once in a while for a short time the sun comes out and the sky is blue so when I went to the garden in a sunny spell I found that my herb garden was on the grow again and already useable. Yes !!!
ALLIUM SCHOENOPRASUM (chives)
Chives also gets eddible flowers.
PETROSELINEUM CRISPUM (parsley)
ALLIUM URSINUM (ramson)
This herb gives pretty white eddible flowers who stay on the plant for a long time, the leafs are used in salads, soups and on sandwiches. After flowering it disappears underground until next Spring.
MELISSA OFFICINALIS (lemon balm)
You can make a nice tea with the leafs only and it really tastes like lemon tea, it also has a calming effect. You can use it also in black or green tea when you are out of lemons to use. It gives cute little white flowers but the plant loves to take over your garden, to avoid that you’ll have to cut the flowers before they’ll drop their seeds. But the plant can be easily removed where it is not wanted.
Have a great weekend all.
