Looking for that perfect cup of tea? Well look no further, it could be right outside your door.  As avid gardeners we are always thinking of our next garden project.  Why not plan for a back door Herbal Tea Garden this spring!

Learn several plants that would be ideal for this type of garden.  Learn about the folk and medicinal value of these favourite garden plants, and some of the not so favourite. Weeds! Did you know a weed is a plant who’s value is unknown to us. We will also share; how to know quality of herbs, how to grow, how to pick, how to blend, proper storage, and then, finally the preparation of the perfect cup of herbal tea.

You have a garden of possibilities in your own back yard, let me introduce you to your new favourite cup of tea!
