When I think of a refreshing summer drink, lemonade is one of the first things that comes to mind. If sunshine was a fruit, I'm pretty sure it would be a lemon. But there's so much more to this little powerhouse than lemonade. It's popular in many savory and sweet dishes, you'll find it in any number of furniture polishes, you can clean copper pots with it, and it has more than a few medicinal uses. You'll even find the lemon tree incorporated into the symbol of the British Institute of Naval Medicine!  READ MORE right arrow
Many of us probably know chamomile best as a delicious, relaxing nighttime tea. A cup of this herbal brew with just a touch of honey is the perfect way to end an evening and head off to bed.

It's not hard, but a few little tricks will give you a better harvest.   READ MORE right arrow
