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. You can enjoy planting and nurturing these plants. You will plant them on into their new homes, firming the earth around them and watering them into place. You will 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.
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 herbal tea. Start your day sipping this delicious flavour!
Moroccan Mint - a classic flavour for mint tea. Simply add warm water to the leaves and enjoy this delicious, deep and soothing flavour.
Blackcurrant Sage - you read it correctly! Blackcurrant Sage. Really fruity and fragrant flavour that is perfect to combine with warm water and sip. (Gorgeous flowers too).
Strawberry Mint - we love this one! Fruity, sweet and unusual. Perfect ingredient for a fruity herbal tea. Spreads invasively - keep it contained!
Roman Chamomile - an absolute classic herbal tea ingredient. Many find it a relaxing and soothing drink. We think Roman Chamomile is the best variety to grow for tea.
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.
