Lysimachia nummularia (creeping Jenny, Moneywort)

Lysimachia nummularia (creeping Jenny, Moneywort)

at last my book is ready to hit the shelves and if there are any bruises in the process the cure is inside http://www.mercierpress.ie/irish-books/the-holistic-gardener-first-aid-

let you in on a secret the best bruise cure apart from astringent black tea and the hard enough to grow ‘arnica’ – well some regions anyway- is creeping jenny – the sap shrinks it right up. another good use for a common weed normally discarded.

That said do paint your rake handle red – it wont disappear in the long grass or on the plot floor if vibrant – best to avoid those coyote-roadrunner moments before they happen. mbeep mbeep!!
