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!
