    Wattleseed (recycle, refill and save)

    Posted by Roy Palmer on 22nd May 2023

    I haven’t used yet but I expect its quality as last delivery however I am intrigued by the notion of ‘save’ - is this referring to this order or the next ? and in what form is the saving?

    Fun flavours

    Posted by Valerie Ringland on 1st Sep 2019

    It's been really fun to cook with diverse native herbs of Australia. The saltbush for example does taste salty but not like sea or table salt, similar to the pepper berry. The mints are quite strong and just a pinch makes a tea. We're enjoying connecting with the land more.
