Surrey Motherhouse Garden News

As many of you know, we installed the new greenhouse in the Surrey Motherhouse garden along with 4 composters last February. As part of this project we started a number of garden and medicinal herbs including basil, thyme, marjoram, oregano, parsley, rosemary, savory, dill, chives, spearmint, horehound, feverfew, hyssop, borage, chamomile and marshmallow. This year we are adding more: Angelica, echinacea, cilantro/coriander, confrey, cinquefoil, anise, lemon balm, and bay laurel. We're also going to be producing a huge selection of bedding plants for the yard. I've got cuttings of fuchsia, geranium, begonia, and chrysanthemums on the go and I've got a huge pile of marigold seeds from last year's plants. In addition, we're going to be growing a lot of vegetables. If anyone is interested in having some seeds, or needs some medicinal herbs, or wants to learn how to do any of this gardening stuff, don't hesitate to contact me.
