The flavours you are going to be enjoying:

Orange Mint-  such a beautiful variety of Mint with a strong hint of citrus flavour.  It really does smell like minty orange.  This is beautiful, bizarre but also useful.  It is perfect chopped finely into a salad.  It makes a beautiful fruity mint tea.  Nice in cocktails too.   

Chives - A kitchen garden classic.  Easy to grow, strong onion flavour and simply gorgeous flowers.  We love adding this to omelettes. 

Society Garlic - we have waited so long to share this one with you.  Attractive architectural stems contain a really strong garlic flavour.  This is perfect for adding to soups, stews but amazing on the barbecue.  This really is a special plant.

Oregano 'Hot n Spicy' - this gorgeous plant combines the classic deep and musky flavour of Oregano with a spicy kick.  We can't get enough of this.  Perfect for adding to Mexican dishes or homemade pizza.

Tashkent Mint - this is turbo charged mint.  Seriously.  The flavour is so strong.  It grows enthusiastically too.  The aroma is so strong, bold and beautiful.  Keep it contained.

Purple Sage  - this is a plant that becomes more beautiful as the year passes.  In terms of flavour you will recognise the deep and delicious flavour of sage.  The foliage is a deep purple that intensifies as we go into the autumn season.  It is evergreen and provides flavour and interest through the colder months.


How big are the plants?

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.

Delivery options explained.

All herbs dispatched with DHL Next Day Delivery. For customers in the Highlands and Channel Islands this is 48 hour delivery. This starts from £4.95 and ensures that your herbs reach you promptly and in good health.

Order Now

If your plant is available on our surplus list you will have the option to 'order now'. We dispatch fresh herbs by Next Day DHL 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, Tuesday or Wednesday of the week to ensure no delays over the weekend. We aim to dispatch all such orders within 10 days.


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.

Customer Satisfaction

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.
