Beautiful living flavour. Delivered to your door.
A specially selected collection of six plants - our favourites to make herbal tea with.
The pace of life seems to get quicker by the second. We constantly receive updates on smartphones, we watch tv while browsing the web on mobile devices, we run for trains and talk as we walk. In this hectic world, it’s nice to be able to harvest your own flavour and take a moment for yourself.
That is what this carefully selected collection of plants does for us. It will provide a moment of peace for you, and you can enjoy planting and nurturing these plants. You can plant them on into their new homes, firming the earth around them and watering them into place. You will have the chance to enjoy harvesting a few leaves in the morning before work and taking a moment to sip a delicious and naturally flavourful cup of herbal tea. The day might get more hectic but you can enjoy that moment, for you.
Chocolate Mint - this is an unusual and delicious variety of Peppermint. Far sweeter than normal Peppermint, providing a distinctive aroma and delicious tasting tea.
Peppermint Black - a deep and soothing variety of Peppermint that is perfect for using to make a chilled out cup of mint tea.
Moroccan Mint - a classic flavour for Mint tea. Simply add warm water to the leaves and enjoy this delicious, deep and soothing flavour.
Lemon Curd Thyme - it really does smell like lemon curd! When you add boiling water to the leaves, this variety makes a subtle and delicious herbal tea.
Variegated Lemon Balm - not only does this variety smell and taste amazing but it looks really pretty too. Attractive gold/green foliage really draws the eye to this plant. It's flavour is deep, mellow and lemony.
Chamomile ‘mobile’ - an absolute classic herbal tea ingredient. Many find it a relaxing and soothing drink. In this selection, you will receive either Roman or Double Chamomile.
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, Channel Islands and Northern Ireland this is a 48-hour delivery service.
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.
