Station: [19] Herb garden

It's tea time, my dears! Our herb garden has flavoursome herbs for all occasions. Are you feeling a bit queasy? Brew up some oregano or mugwort.

An ache in your bones? Rely on coriander. Or caraway. Or yarrow.

Plagued and embarrassed by wind? Then take fennel! Or parsley! Or coriander.

A tickle in your throat? An itchy toe? Wobbly ears? Why not try a dose of ... of... Oh, just look it up yourself! There's a herb for every ailment. And we have several dozen here in the herb garden.

Feel free to breathe in the scents and even try a sample.

As for me, I’m off to search for every kitty-cat’s most favourite herb guessed it: catnip, a member of the mint family ... a herb that couldn’t be more to my taste. And the same is true of this perennial right here: valerian! ...meeeooowww.... it’s to die for!
