This super saver Perennial herb seed collection consists of 5 seed packets, 1 each of the following varieties:
Oregano - The classic pizza herb and redolent of so much Mediterranean cooking. No self-respecting herb garden should be without oregano, which also grows well in pots. Height: 60cm/24in.
Marjoram - This dainty, half-hardy herb, a cousin of oregano, has a spicy-sweet flavour. Its leaves can be infused to create a fragrant tisane or chopped into salads. Blend them with butter to create a tasty fish for sauce, or add to meat casseroles immediately before serving. The leaves can be added to pot pourri or herb pillows.
Rosemary - The perfect companion for lamb, used sparingly rosemary can transform a range of other dishes. Give it a sunny, well drained position (especially in winter) and it is usually hardy. Height: 180cm/72in.
Sage Broad Leaved - A wonderful foil to the fattiness of pork and used in most 'herby' sausages. Sage butter and sage vinegar are just two of its many uses. Height: 60cm/24in.
Thyme - Is any herb more useful than thyme? Great in sauces, soups, stuffings, and perfect added to food cooked in wine. Bees love the flowers. Height: 20cm/8in.
