And yet again… a fantastic, literally ‘event-full’ weekend: herbs, a private party, a 100 celebration, Indian music… all in three days!
We started on Friday with a balcony herb growing workshop with Miranda Tringis from Cyherbia Herb Gardens whom I call the ‘herb fairy’- she is so knowledgeable and in love with all things plant. The actual beginning of her demonstration/talk was slightly delayed because we just could not stop asking her questions about our little gardening woes. And she did have an answer for every single one - she’s a walking encyclopedia really, when it comes to plants and I had been looking really forward to this event.
The herbs in my balcony’s herb corner served as models and we were all excited to find out so many little tips and tricks on how to keep them growing and healthy. The second part was spent planting our own lemon verbena into little pots the ‘proper way’. My large balcony table provided the ideal working area and we had great fun getting our hands in dirty!
