Q "I was interested that you suggested summer savory may help keep blackfly off broad beans. Yes, but what about eating it? I was brought up in Montreal, Canada, where this herb is hugely popular. I'd encourage anyone to try it," says Seb Hawken, of Tottenham, North London.
A So would I, Seb. You can buy a pot in a garden centre for as little as pounds 1.50 and plonk it in your herb garden with the more popular occupants. It grows to about 18in with bronze/green leaves and lovely lilac flowers. The leaves are used primarily as an alternative to sage and are great with pork, duck and as a seasoning for barbecued meat. It's big in France, too, from where settlers took it to the Canadian east coast.
