As a chef I love to grow my own herbs, I love the walk outside to cut fresh herbs from my herb runner that I have in front of my house. The taste of herbs that you grow yourself is so much better than shop bought, plus you save so much money, plus plus they look and smell so beautiful, win win! And here is another winner... I got a great tip from my friend to use leftover coffee grinds for my herbs as a fertiliser and it's working. When I finish my French press coffee in the morning, I spoon the coffee grinds from the pot into my watering can, followed by about 3 litres of water, mix well and pour over my herbs. The coffee grinds are full of nitrogen, which is great for plant and herb growth. Here's to no waste and growing your own!
Happy herbs, happy chef :) Clo xxx
