I make basil lemon drops that are wonderful. I put some basil in a sealed contained with chopped basil to get an infused sugar for the rim of the glass and then muddle some basil with vodka, sugar, and fresh lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Cheers!

Marigolds aren't just there to brighten the patch up they are essential if you are looking to try and limit the use of chemical sprays to deter unwanted pests. Marigolds attract beneficial mini beasts (hover flies, lady birds etc) who then in turn eat the aphids etc There are other beneficial flowers that do the same job if you aren't so keen on vibrant orange. Chamomile, daisy, flowering onion garlic, sunflowers amongst others do the job too. Leave nettles growing wild if you can as this is where ladybirds live. Have fun and hope this helps!
