A while back I recycled 2 old car tyres and put them to good use for growing my herbs.

I love to throw heaps of fresh basil and coriander into my cooking, and I have quit chewing gum, breath mints and toothpaste, so I grow mint to make my own mint drinks and just to chew the leaves.

The slugs had the basil in no time, the whole lot was gone in 48 hours, but everything else is thriving. I’ve got plenty of coriander, lemon balm, oregano, parsley and TONS of mint. I love nibbling on mint leaves…and parsley…both good for teeth and breath! The parsley also goes well in juices and smoothies, and is full of goodness. The mint and parsley are even hardy enough to grow through autumn and into winter…only the really cold frosts will finally beat them.
