I found this old wooden trough in the barn. Its about 12ft long and ideal for a small range of herbs. I lined the inside with weatherproof membrane sheeting to stop the wood rotting and applied some varnish on the outside. With this and a few herbs in an old butler sink I now have a range of herbs to accompany all sorts of dishes. As in the old days I put this outside the back door just off from the kitchen and as long as you water them everynight – enjoy the herbs ! Rosemary is excellent with Roast local Lamb, parsley can decorate most dishes and fennel ? Well, part of the fun is to experiment.
