When I worked in a local greenhouse in my early twenties my favourite section was the herbs. I would deliberately walk down that aisle so I could run my hands over the leaves and smell the fragrant aromas they released.
When I think herbs I automatically think lavender, basil, oregano and thyme. The actual list is much longer and just as fragrant.
One plant that I recently found out is actually an herb is rhubarb. Did you know that? And to think I always believed it to be a fruit. What surprises me most about that is the greenhouse owner where I worked must not have known that little tidbit of information, or she just didn’t share it with us.
It just goes to show that no matter how much you think you know, there’s always more to find out. And that is my goal here: to share what I know and what I learn along the way.
