Holiday cottage near Edinburgh No. 2 cottage - Garden. Herbs, Wild garlic, Tree Peony

Back garden of No. 2 cottage 

5.5.2014 Front garden Tree peony

Back garden entrance area


Ransoms - wild garlic
Chop and use in omlettes, mashed potato, soups, casseroles ......

Also in the holiday cottage garden is
 mint, lovage, wild raspberries, plums, greengages, etc.

The little black shiny pearls (seeds)

They're extremely hard to germinate, involving storage in freezer
and exposure to heat at the right time.

Then only a few, every few years germinate.

Apparently at one time, only the Emperor of China could grow them.
