Sunny start to the day β˜€οΈ

This beauty is Evening Primrose. Swipe for the before pic!

This was a precious gift from my herb friend Jen at @ashrescuecentredevon who sent me a box of baby herbs a few months ago.

What a treat to see it grow and in bloom! 🌿

No filter! 🌿

The plot is bursting with vibrant colour and all the veggies are looking lush.

I've been picking broad beans and peas this week. Next stop is the blackcurrants and redcurrants.

There are so many herbs to harvest too, I'm up to my eyes in end of year exam revision this weekend, but hoping to find some time to sneak in another visit.

Basket from @deja_vu_macclesfield 

Happy Friday 🌼

Back to the allotment today 🌿

I've finished my final counselling assignment for this term, just three exams to go and then it's the summer break.

This is Althea officinalis aka Marshmallow. The leaves are so soft and it's used as a demulcent.  I need to take a harvest of the leaves as I can't bring myself to dig up the roots! ✨

Mullein 🌿

I have 12 Mullein in the garden this year, my first harvest!

I'm going to be picking the yellow flowers, drying them and using them to create an infused oil. 

A brief respite from herbal medicine revision and assignments... Back to PR tomorrow! ☎️

Allotment life 🌱

The allotment is looking very different to this time last year!

The herb beds are starting to take shape, the first time that herbs have been grown on the plot in 100 years ✨

I'm learning more about medicinal herbs for my future career and it's so much easier when I get to know the plants in person and watch them growing. 

There are plenty of veggies, peas, leeks, onions, carrots, potatoes, broad beans, French beans πŸ₯¬

Plus, blackcurrants, redcurrants, whitecurrants, gooseberries, apples, pears 🍐

I now have the mammoth task of filling the new herb beds with soil and compost... Watch this space!

Bugle is following me around 🌱

I had a great day yesterday doing some actual face to face dispensary training with a medical herbalist.

I was up early and on the road for a 2.5 hour drive at 7.15am.
Stopped at a service station for a cuppa and noticed this Bugle growing outside. Something is telling me I need to investigate this plant a bit more as it seems to be following me around!

A long drive home last night and feeling tired today but it was a brilliant day and I learnt so much!

Happy Friday 🌼

I'm determined to get in the garden this weekend and drag myself away from my desk.

PR work has been really busy again this week and I'm gearing up to start my final term of second year at college next week.

But this weekend I need some frehs air and a breather away from my laptop.

What are you planning for this weekend?

Phew, it's Friday 🌞

It's been a busy week PR-wise, with lots of media outreach for my clients and one of my clients @potyquecbd featured in The Independent. 

I've also had a herbal medicine training clinic and took my first full consultation. It was daunting but brilliant, I loved it! I had some great feedback from Lizzie the herbalist taking the clinic and it's really spurred me on for the next few months.

It's a real deep dive learning to be a medical herbalist. All the plant science, learning about the constituents such as steroidal saponins, terpenes, anthraquinones (mind blowing stuff!), all the anatomy and physiology training, clinical methods, it's a massive undertaking but incredibly rewarding when you can support someone's health.

On that note I'm off to have a cup of herbal tea, get back to the day job and will be planting seeds this weekend! 🌿

Planting 🌿

My seeds have arrived from the fabulous Poyntzfield Nursery in Scotland.

It''s a great time to be sowing seeds as it's the first new moon of the lunar year 🌱

While I'm on my Easter break from my herbal medicine course at @heartwoodbotanic I'm determined to get back into the garden.

In the meantime, it's an exciting time for my PR work with the country starting to re-open and the regeneration of a 700 year old Scottish estate.

More new on that later this week! Have a good week and go gently as we're all finding our way this week 🌼
