Other useful garden plants.

Many of our common garden and mainstays can do double, even triple duty as food and medicine when they’re not looking beautiful in the garden. Some plants make for great compost, others are enjoyed by livestock as fodder crops.

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!

This page links to pages devoted to ‘other uses’ of some of our favourites.
