Slow connection? Watch in lower quality
In this film, Fi recommends using dog rose hips for making roseship tea, a delicious drink full of Vitamin C and the scent of Autumn. We then take a look at the blackthorn's shockingly sour sloeberries, which can be transformed into (surely?!) everyone's easy homemade favourite – sloe gin!
Our guide for the Wild Harvests series, Fi Martynoga, is an expert forager and writer, living in the Scottish Borders. She has put together a most wonderful book called Scotland's Wild Harvests, and is a writer for Reforesting Scotland magazine, as well as being involved with Carrifran Wildwood (which I am invited to make a film about next year when they celebrate 20 years of success!).
