What does bergamot look like ...
« on: June 04, 2009, 12:23 »
... when it's not in flower??

I have a mystery plant, which I think may be bergamot as I can't think what the devil else I would have planted there.  In all the books I have it, it just shows me the flower and not the plant.

Not good when I've got the plant and no flipping flowers!!

lol ... I'm just picking the one my plant looks most like in a pathetic attempt to cling to the vain hope that I do know what I'm growing!

Ahem. I didn't realise there was more than one Bergamot, as it happens.  :lol:

Me neither - I only know the one that flavours my Earl Grey tea, and as I'd looked it up  on wiki a few weeks ago, knew there were picis there... :blush:

Try Lady Grey, it's lovely.

Yup! Lemon and Orange. And Bergamot (topic!)

See my rather sad Tea thread in the Eating and Drinking section.  :)
