Our herb plants are generally undemanding and easy to grow. Many can be grown in pots and containers or together in beds and herbaceous borders. Most benefit from a sunny position in free draining soil and will need protection from cold winds. The majority of kitchen garden herbs originate from the Mediterranean and Middle East so heat and light are important factors for successful growth. Pick regularly to keep plants compact.
All our herb varieties are supplied in pots measuring 9cm in diameter, are well rooted with strong and established root systems and are ready to be planted out into the garden or larger pots on your patio. The foliage heights will vary between individual varieties. Trim regularly to ensure fresh new growth. Read more
How to preserve Herbs
To dry herbs, hang them in an airing cupboard or other warm place for a week or so, then keep them at room temperature until they are completely dry and brittle. Crush them up and store in air-tight containers. Preserve fresh herbs by chopping them up and filling an ice cube tray, top up with water and freeze, add the frozen ‘herb cubes’ directly to your dishes as required. Show less
