Wild Plants

Episode: CCGYG-112

Taking care to point out the perils of picking in the wild, James travels to Northern Ireland where he harvests seaweed for a luxurious seaweed body scrub., forages for elderberries and turns them in to an anti-viral jam to help ward off colds and flu, and tries to offer hayfever sufferers some relief with his nettle tea. He also seeks out a tiny wild flower called eyebright and uses it to make a compress to soothe tired and itchy eyes. For the green-fingered, James demonstrates how you can make your own mini wild flower meadow in a tiny back garden, and offers some historical and scientific background to the plants he uses.
