365 Frankendael day 239

A photo of a herb I’ve never used but one with many apparent uses (when used in the appropriate way – it’s not one for the table!). I got all excited about this shrub early in the year and then forgot to use it at the appropriate time. Maybe next year.

It is Oregon Grape, (Berberis aquifolium) growing near my local shopping precinct.

  1. You can use this plant to make jam from the fruit. I went to collect the amazing blue fruit from our plants this year but found that the blackbirds had gotten there first! Looks like I am going to have to wait for next years crop and protect it 🙂
