Herbs in the garden and kitchen



This page is having a bit of a rebuild and I’m a better photographer than I was when I started, so lots of new pics are coming. Please bear with us while its worked on.


The border between kitchen and wild herbs is a blurry one. Some people like to include wild herbs in their gardens and in many cases, kitchen and garden herbs have escaped and made good in the wild.

We’re always learning about our botanic community, taking new pics and meeting folks who know a lot more than we do, so keep checking your favourite plants on these pages. There’s always more to come!

There are thousands of herbs and other plants out there but we try to keep these pages to what we actually grow and use at Ligaya Garden. There are others we use, but generally forage for (we’ve only got so much space) you can find them on these pages – Plants in the Wild  and Other Useful Plants
