Herbs to grow & sow this summer

At The Pig near Bath gardeners Ollie Hutson and Fran Chilet-Olmos aim to have a steady supply of leafy herbs all summer.

Seed was often sown earlier than we do now and the varieties of seed were no different except for some of our softer hybrids. ‘The answer lies in the soil’ and copious amounts of compost.

National Spinach Day

Spinach is naturally fat-free, cholesterol free and high in dietary fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, and folate. For more information on folate, see HGIC 4068, Folate.
