Calendula Tea

The strebergarten was full of marigolds this year.
Not only do they look beautiful but they do a fab job of keeping slugs at bay.

They make lovely picked flowers, (I've been mixing them with cornflowers) and you can make a tea which is apparently a great detoxifier. Tastes horrendous but I've been drinking it in the hope it's doing me some good! You can make it directly from the flowers or dry the petals so that you can drink it all year round!

I've been collecting the seeds too so watch this space for a how-to and a giveaway!
