Herb of happiness
St John’s Wort is one of the saints of the herbal world.
In large doses it’s poisonous to livestock, but to humans it brings one huge blessing.
It’s a natural anti-depressant.
It’s been found to be as effective as Prozac, and with fewer side-effects.
The fact that it’s so attractive as well is just an added bonus.
When we strim the orchard, I try to save a few clumps to cheer me with their beauty.
