I have a small garden, but it is full of plants, mainly grown in pots. Because so many people have limited growing space nowadays it was important to me that I selected a wide range of plants, some are suitable if you do have a big garden but some are good for a small space and even to grow indoors. It is very difficult to narrow it down to five as I like different teas at different times of year.
I really like to have rose hip Rosa or myrtle myrtus communis tea in the winter-time, when I need a bit of a boost against catching a cold or a cough. I harvest these from established plants, year after year. I also love chamomile tea in the evenings, as it is such a relaxing tea. I sow chamomile Chamomile nobile from seed in the spring each year.
One packet of seeds should hopefully provide you with enough chamomile tea for a year.
You can also grow lots of manuka Leptospermum scoparium plants from seed or you can start with a larger plant. Manuka is an amazing, flavoursome tea made from the stems and leaves of the plant. I love mint Mentha tea at all times of the year.
About the author
It is such a great tea to help your digestion and the plants are so easy to grow. I also have to add lemon verbena Aloysia triphylla to my favorites list. This is not the easiest plant to grow as the seeds need a warm climate to germinate and the plants do not like the temperature to drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. However, find a good strong plant to begin with, and protect it from cold weather if you live in a colder climate, and you will be rewarded. Lemon verbena has the most crisp lemon scent and taste; it is a delicious and refreshing tea.
Saffron Crocus sativus and rosemary Rosmarinus officinalis are a brilliant combination. Stock photo.
