Plant Herbs

If you are an avid cook, there is nothing better than fresh herbs from your own garden to add that extra zing to your culinary adventures! Even if you aren't adventurous in the kitchen, it's worth planting one pot of coriander ( just toss a few coriander seeds into a ready to plant pot) and one of mint ( mint is practically invasive and thrives in a pot) will make for the yummiest coriander garnish on food and minty summer lemonade!

Remember Earth Day 

Earth Day 2015 is on Wednesday the 22nd of April, and we are reminding you to re-commit to being responsible to the earth in your home. It's really very simple to do, when buying anything from furniture to detergent think re-cycled or eco and environment friendly. Re-cycle anything you plan to discard by giving away to organizations that put your stuff to good use, as the adage goes your trash could be someones treasure!
