There is nothing quite as nice as growing your very own herbs in your garden to add to your cooking or salad dishes.

Strawberry Sticks is a highly atrractive dual purpose plant for both the herb and flower garden. It has a base branching habit, growing to about 40cm high. The light green leaves on the plant can be cooked and used like spinach. This is then followed by strawberry like fruits along the stems which are very tasty picked and eaten fresh.
