Glad that my pineapple mint ideas were useful, I've been experimenting with ways to use pineapple sage and have had some successful results. It's gone in a cake, into a chicken dish and also dried some for pot pourri and short of using it for making a herb tea, I can't think of any other uses, I'll blame my age

I have to admit to once sharing your daughters previous feelings Jane, until my late early 30's I couldn't stand the scent, I think in all fairness I'd been put off by a cheap lavender scented disenfectant used by my Mum and the fact we had a dotty old aunt that wreaked of the stuff and insisted on giving you huge hugs in her heavily lavender scented bosom.
Since discovering the true scent of lavender as I got older, it's now one of my favourite scents and herbs, my poor neice and nephews are fast becoming in danger of having a dotty old aunt who wreaks of lavender lol! I don't think the Victorian's did much for lavenders popularity, well they did but in a negative way. The Victorian elderly ladies used so much lavender that it became associated with old ladies, and sadly that idea has stuck amongst the young. My step-sons new girlfriend would sooner die than have lavender scented anything about her person. Hopefully she'll grow out of it, or I'll coax her out of it
