A specially selected collection of six plants - our customers' favourites to use for making cocktails and seasoning drinks.
You guessed it. This is our best selling collection of 2020. And 2019...and 2018. It’s very popular.
All of the herbs featured within this collection are perfect for growing on the patio ready for those summer cocktail parties. These plants are so strong in flavour that they will hold their own even when mixed with a strong spirit.
Did someone say Pimms? A selection of these herbs were added to the Pimms at Mr and Mrs Urban Herbs' wedding and it was just as amazing as you might imagine. Perfect as a present for a hen party or summer birthday bash. This is truly a present with a difference.
Rosemary - our choice of either traditional, trailing or BBQ 'smoky' Rosemary. This is so popular in cocktails at the moment. Our friends at BBC Good Food Show love adding a garnish of Rosemary to a strong drink. It is easy to grow and versatile. Works particularly well with gin.
Lemon Curd Thyme - easy to grow, attractive, fragrant and full of flavour. Perfect for infusing into a strong, lemony drink with a little bit of sweetness.
Lime Mint - a fantastically strong variety of Mint. The leaves infuse drinks with a lovely, refreshing Lime flavour and taste amazing in a Mojito or a G&T!
Orange Thyme - a subtle citrus flavour comes through the leaves of Orange Thyme, and acts as a beautiful botanical for a variety of drinks.
Strawberry Mint - we love this one! A very sweet, strawberry flavour that is exuded from every leaf on this plant. So yummy in a proper Pimms!
Blackcurrant Sage - a strong Blackcurrant flavour that infuses a wide range of drinks to fantastic effect. And beautiful flowers that can be used as a garnish!
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.
