Our Cowslip Meadow is putting on a good show. They're moisture loving plants so have thrived with last years soggy summer. The story is quite different for many of our other herbs - they didn't appreciate last years cold, wet summer (or the never-ending winter) so we'll be busy this year increasing our stocks and improving our soil drainage!

The Cowslip flowers are harvested in Spring and are one of the key ingredients used in Weleda medicines, prescribed by doctors, to help strengthen the heart and rhythmic system.
