That time of summer where garden lovers all over the country can take a bit of a step back and enjoy the fruits of their labours – the bulbs you planted at the start of the year are flowering, the lawns are looking resplendent, and the runner beans are running riot.
After all that hard work, what could be better than sitting down in the evening sun and surveying your own piece of paradise with a nice, congratulatory drink? But we’re not talking about just cracking open a beer or pouring a glass of wine – wouldn’t the drink taste that much better if it came from the garden you put all those hard yards into maintaining?
We think so! Which is why we’ve come up with an infographic guide for how to ‘Grow Your Own Cocktails’. We’ve picked out six herbs that you can grow really easily, either in a veg patch or a window box, and what wonderful cocktails they go in.
So after all that care and attention you’ve given your garden in recent months, it’s time for your garden to give you a treat in return – Enjoy!
