Going Green

Nilaya's on board garden supplies the galley with virtually all the culinary herbs needed aboard throughout the year. 

Dew covered cobwebs from Barge Nilaya's on board army of spiders. Cherry tomatoes, radishes, nasturtiums, chives, rosemary, coriander, mint, spearmint, sage, chervil, basil, tarragon, lettuce, mesclun salad leaves, mustard and cress all grow in profusion.  

During summer, Barge Nilaya's own troughs provide almost all of the salad leaves and herbs consumed aboard.

Fresh home grown herbs and crunchy salad, just when you need them.

Barge Nilaya's troughs of hardy red geraniums get carefully stored during the winter months, but in summer provide vivid floral displays that have very much become very much part of the ships identity. 

"Good luck with your gardening project, it is a great touch!"

On a recent visit to Beaune in Burgundy, I spotted this 'Herbie' being used to grow plants.
