FRESH BUNCHES OF MINT in cool summer beverages, fragrant basil over juicy tomatoes or the zing of coriander in a curry – herbs bring flavour, sparkle and goodness to cooking. They’ve been used since forever to help preserve food, nourish our bodies and heal us. A culinary herb is any plant with edible parts – leaves, flowers, stems, bark or roots – that is eaten cooked or raw, as a delicious garnish or on its own. Plant now and enjoy very soon!
