#544: From Herbal Tea Bed to RHS Hyde Hall

Welcome back to another exciting episode of our podcast! In this instalment, we embark on a journey of transformation, from repurposing a Belfast sink into a herbal tea bed to exploring the veg gardens of RHS Hyde Hall. Join us as we delve into the joys of gardening and culinary delights!

Creating a Herbal Tea Bed in an Old Belfast Sink

We kick off the episode by diving into the process of transforming an old Belfast sink into a flourishing herbal tea bed. I was set the challenge to create a herbal tea bed. After doing a lot of research I decided to use a Belfast sink I was recently donated.

There are lots of herbs we could use for making teas but the only herbs available at this time, are Rosemary, Thyme, Sage, Moroccan Mint and Lemon Balm. We would have liked to add Lavender, Chamomile and Bergamot to the mix.

What herbs do you use for tea?
