I was brought up on the west coast of Scotland and spent much of my time through the summer holidays foraging for cockles on the beach, rowan berries on the hillside, and crab apples and blackberries from the hedgerows to turn into jams and jellies. Foraging beautiful flowers and food is - to me - one of life’s great enhancers, made even easier if you can grow the plants near to hand. This collection contains my favourites for fruit and flowers to harvest.
