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 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. The Lime Mint is so strong in flavour that it will hold it’s own – even when mixed with a strong spirit.
Did someone say Pimms? The Strawberry Mint and the Lime Mint were added to the Pimms and Mrs 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 - this is so popularly used 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.
Lime Mint - This is mint but NOT as you know it! Distinctively 'lime' element to the flavour of these fragrant leaves provides a truly 'sharp' and delicious flavour that holds its own even when combined with a strong drink.
Ginger Mint - really unusual variety that is fantastic when combined with Rosemary in a cocktail. Allow the subtle ginger flavour to infuse into your drink as you enjoy its full flavour.
Blackcurrant Sage - perfect for adding to a selection of beverages. The Blackcurrant element of the flavour is so versatile. We have found from experience this is perfect for using to infuse home made gin. The flower is bright red, unusual, bright and makes the perfect garnish for a summer cocktial.
Strawberry Mint - we love this one! Fruity, sweet and unusual. Perfect ingredient for your cocktail herb farm. If ever there was a herb designed to go into a mojito then this is it!
Orange Thyme - this is a new discovery. Perfect for combining with vodka. Seriously you have to try it. Traditional flavour of Thyme is combined with a dash of citrus that goes so well in a variety of drinks. The citrus element of the flavour works particularly well with gin and vodka.
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.
All herbs dispatched with Royal Mail first class delivery. This starts from £4.95 and ensures that your herbs reach you promptly and in good health.
If your plant is available on our surplus list it will be available as an option for immediate dispatch. We dispatch fresh herbs by first class Royal Mail delivery to ensure that they are not in the postal system for long. We will aim to dispatch orders at the beginning of the week following your order, on Monday or Tuesday of the week to ensure no delays over the weekend.
Herb plants are dispatched from April – August each year, but you can order the plants in advance all year round to ensure that you receive the unusual varieties that you desire. Plants will be dispatched on a ‘first come first served’ basis as soon as they are ready. Some varieties will be available a little later in the year from May onwards, and we will aim to dispatch all herbs in one shipment once all the varieties are ready. We will update you on the estimated date of your delivery as soon as we know.
If you have a preferred month for delivery i.e. you are having a new garden installed or building work conducted, please contact us and we will make a note on your order to try our best to accommodate that request.
We aim to reuse packaging as much as possible. Your herbs will be delivered in taupe recyclable pots and packaged in a plastic blister cell which contains at least 90% recycled content and is itself 100% recyclable. These things are important to us 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.
