Levisticum officinale

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

In forum: Levisticum officinale

The flowers develop into ridged seeds which can be used, like caraway or fennel seeds, for flavouring. Lovage has a very strong and distinctive taste, like a spicy celery. Young leaves can be added to salads and the seeds can be used in cooking. The plant can be valuable for insects: the hollow stems for hibernation and the flowers for food.

Cynara cardunculus

Once, the leaf-stalks and young shoots were blanched and eaten like celery in salads, soups and stews. Like other members of the thistle family, it is much visited by a variety of insects.

My Wildlife Pond

Comment from Joanne 9919

In forum: Gardening for wildlife

Well I finally got my small pond in and decided on the plants for it. I chose Typha Minima - Mini Bulrush, Mimulus Luteus - Monkey Musk, Caltha Palustris - Marsh Marigold and Oenanthe Japonica Flamingo - Variegated Water Celery.

I thought I would show you a picture of it.

Feeling guilty now

Message from Georgie

Oh dear, to his credit my OH also eats cauliflower, celery, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and peppers! I realise now that perhaps I've been too harsh! I just can't understand why he doesn't like things like asparagus, courgettes and leeks. I'll count my blessings. :D

Fruit and Veg in pots

Message from Georgie

In forum: Container gardening

Hi Maria. You can grow almost anything in pots providing they are big enough - although I've found some things are more successful than others. The pictures include Beetroot, Cape Gooseberries, Celery, Chillies, Cucumber, French Beans, Garlic, Runner Beans, Peas, Radish, Raspberries, Spring Onions, Strawberries, Tomatoes and a variety of herbs including Chives, Mint, Parsley and Thyme.

You can see some of the produce on my photobucket link under 'Edibles'. I'd be happy to recommend particular varieties if you let me know what you'd like to grow. I might even have some spare seeds if you'd like to trial a few.

Good luck.
