Basil Infographic

I’m developing some information charts for herbs in the wellness garden on the Glastonbury site. The plants currently being tended here in Wales, and in Bristol, all have gentle medicinal properties and have been used safely for generations.

I’ve been playing with the infographic site Piktochart, and started with my all time favourite herb – Basil. Reputed to be hard to grow, it’s a herb that I have an affinity with and have grown commercially.

Planting a wellness garden

I have just returned from the first work weekend on our gardens at Worthy Farm – the home of Europe’s biggest music festival. A dry weekend, with some sun, saw us building the first three planters for our wellness garden.

Designed as a small breathing space in the mayhem, it will be planted up with a variety of herbs that promote physical and mental wellness, with an emphasis on colour, scent and texture.

I’m now working on a set of infographic cards to be displayed with each plant… and have a new  found respect for graphic designers!
