Appletree luxury self-catering cottage herb garden
At Appletree Cottage there is now a well-established herb garden which guests are welcome to make use of for their cooking
The herb garden has been established for about three years now - really since Appletree Cottage opened. Good stalwarts are Rosemary, Chives, Parsley, Oregon and Sage. In the summer we have grown artichokes but they do not grow as well in this part of Scotland as they did in our allotment when we stayed down south. However, they still give a good architectural structure to the garden. We have also had success with strawberries but the trick is getting to them before the deer see them. Spring onions, rocket and garlic have all been successes in the past.
