Mid-Spring Herb Walk Queen’s Park, Glasgow

A few weeks ago, another group of foragers (and a different dog, the lovely Dot), took a wander around Queen’s Park in the south of Glasgow. We really got a sense that Spring was moving on, the trees were greener, the Nettles bigger and the Coltsfoot coming to the end of its flowering season.

The area around the pond was bursting with new life, lots of Mint, a little Lady’s Smock and many widespread medicinal favourites like Cleavers, Nettles and some tasty Cresses. We also found Hawthorn leaves to munch and the Sorrel getting bigger and bigger.

After a quick run through of some plant ID pointers using Dandelion and Plantain, we headed back to Locavore to make some Nettle soup and an experimental Nettle and Apple juice using the trusty hand-juicer.
