Bramble

October 2, 2018

We just love blackberries and it’s been a good year for these hedgerow gems.

Our third limited edition of 2018 captures the dramatic dark purple colour of this member of the rose family, with a lip wrap emphasising their deep green leaves.

Over 300 species of this dynamic plant sprawl across the land, creating cathedrals of thorny arches, providing a haven for many small mammals and birds.

Folklore suggests passing through the arch of a bramble would cure many ailments, as do tinctures and teas of its leaves, berries and roots. Still, the gathering of hedgerow brambles in the autumn is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, as is savouring the wine, jam and desserts that follow.

Wonderful Howgate Wonder

What a wonderful day and a wonderful apple. We’ve been our picking some of the old English apples from our orchard. These apples keep really well throughout winter.
