Final chance to buy hardy herbs for winter. Our online store closes for orders from 12pm Wed 27th October.
In this collection you receive six of our favourite herbs to plant ready to plant now to get established for your autumnal herb garden. This is a time of year when we all appreciate strong flavours and colour within our kitchen garden space.
Purple Sage - beautiful purple foliage that becomes more beautiful as the weather gets colder. Looks great in autumnal low level sunlight. The flavour is a kitchen garden classic. Perfect for adding to dishes during the colder evenings.
Thyme Archers Gold - beautiful flavour with subtle lemony twist. The foliage of this variety is bright and attractive.
Trailing Rosemary - So versatile. Perfect for planting in hanging baskets or raised beds where this variety will spill and trail while looking delightful. Rosemary is such a classic flavour that will always be welcome in our kitchen.
Golden Thyme - really eye catching variety with bright foliage. Classic Thyme flavour that is so versatile in winter cooking.
Orange Thyme - really attractive upright growth. We had to include this variety in our autumnal collection. The flavour is light and delicious. The aroma makes us smile. It's beautiful and really does smell like Orange!
Lavender Vera - a beautiful and classical variety of Lavender. We included this variety within our autumnal collection because the distinctive silver foliage of Vera looks unbelievably beautiful as we head into autumn. When the low level late September sunlight hits this variety you will see exactly what we mean!
All herbs are supplied in 9cm pots. They will be freshly picked for your order. The condition of the plants is our primary concern when fulfilling your order. The foliage will differ in size throughout the season and may be clipped prior to dispatch. The herbs are not soft grown and have spent time in unheated conditions. They are a product designed not just to last a few days but to be grown on by yourselves and supply flavour for months to come.
From January to March, customers are able to pre-order herbs for delivery later in spring, to ensure that you receive the unusual varieties that you desire. We begin dispatch of pre-orders from late March, once all items in your order are available for dispatch in one delivery, as some varieties will be available a little later in the year than others. You will receive notification when this dispatch takes place along with tracking information but if you would like an estimated delivery date after placing your pre-order, please do not hesitate to contact us.
From late March to autumn, herbs will be available for immediate dispatch subject to their availability. We dispatch our fresh potted herbs Monday-Wednesday each week to avoid postal delays over the weekend. We aim to dispatch all fresh herb orders in less than seven days, i.e. an order placed Thursday-Sunday would likely be dispatched the following Monday. Orders placed Monday-Tuesday, we would aim to dispatch by the Wednesday of that week.
If you have a specific dispatch date that you would like us to aim towards, please do not hesitate to let us know. We can't guarantee a particular date but will strive to do our best for you.
All orders are dispatched via a next day courier, ensuring that your herbs reach you promptly and in good health. For customers in the Highlands and Channel Islands this is a 48-hour delivery service. (From 2021 onwards we are unable to ship to Northern Ireland.)
Please note that we do not offer a collection service. Our site is not suitable to receive visitors and this is a rule that we have to apply universally out of respect to our neighbours and family.
We aim to reuse packaging as much as possible. Your herbs will be delivered in taupe recyclable pots. We are moving over to using plastic blister cell packaging which contains at least 90% recycled content and is itself 100% recyclable. These things are important to you and are important to us.
Occasionally due to circumstances beyond our control, problems can arise. If you are not satisfied in the condition of your plants upon reaching you, please contact us as soon as possible providing pictures so that we can deal with your enquiry and feedback to our courier service. We will endeavour to ensure a resolution is reached that leaves you satisfied.
