My Master Gardener is Vicki and her first visit to me was last week. She has already written a blog post about it over at the Master Gardeners blog.

I'm excited that Vicki gave me some seeds for burnet, a type of salad leaf/herb, first grown in Britian in the 16th Century. I planted them in a large pot today, so it will be interesting to see their progress! Apparently, they have pretty flowers, as well as the leaves making a good addition to salads.
The scheme seems like it's going to be really valuable to me - Vicki has a vast amount of knowledge, so it is great to learn from someone so experienced. I am looking forward to her next visit!
