We are experiencing unprecedented levels of support. Thank you so much. Our website is being updated with new stock and varieties daily. DIspatch times are currently slightly longer than normal but we are still aiming to fullfill all orders within 5 working days.
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, BBQ 'smoky' Rosemary or another upright Rosemary such as Mrs Jessops. 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.
Basil Mint - easy to grow and truly intriguing flavour. Perfect for adding to gin or a strong drink. The Basil element of this flavour adds a deep and delicious flavour to so many drinks. A favourite with drink producers that we have worked with.
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!
Blackcurrant Sage - strong blackcurrant flavour within this variety makes it perfect for adding to drinks. Perfect for adding to a summer fruity cocktail.
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!
Lemon Variegated Thyme - not only does this variety look great but the deep lemon flavour within this variety will enhance a range of drinks. Perfect for decorating a cocktail.
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 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.
