The Strange and Beautiful Collection
What do you get?
A specially selected collection of six plants that we rotate every few weeks. The plants within this collection must meet VERY strict criteria. They must be either strange, beautiful or BOTH.
Every few weeks we upload a collection of our absolute favourite herbs that we adore. Most of the plants that we grow are either strange, beautiful or both. And these are our favourites. This collection will change every few weeks.
Grow your own flavour at home. Delivered to your door.
The flavours you are going to be enjoying:
Thyme Silver Queen- this variety contains the delicious aroma and flavour of Thyme but within beautiful silver variegated foliage. It really does look beautiful throughout the year. We simply had to include it within our first Strange and Beautiful collection of 2021.
Creeping Lemon Thyme - low growing and creeping, this variety grows in a steady determined manner, spreading and spilling. The citrus aroma from the foliage is deep and delicious. The foliage provides all year round interest, a beautiful fragrance and delicious flavour. What more could we ask for?
Hyssop – loved by bees that will enjoy visiting the beautiful blue flowers produced by Hyssop during the summer. We hope that you will enjoy those flowers as much as we do. They truly are gorgeous. Hyssop lends you a minty/peppery flavour that is perfect for adding to soup and stews.
Lemon Verbena – does this variety need much of an introduction? We love the aroma and flavour of this plant and we know that you will too. Deep, sweet and lemony aroma is generated from this plant. Perfect for adding to cocktails or as a topping on deserts.
Japanese Parsley – produces elegant foliage which is perfect for chopping into a mixed salad. It’s flavour is a cross between celery and parsley. This has become a favourite of ours over the last few years. We are so excited to share it with you.
BBQ Rosemary - we all like Rosemary right?! But this variety is both Rosemary flavour and smoky at the same time. Intrigued? This flavour is perfect for seasoning meat or putting in home-made bread. This is a truly strange but delicious flavour that you will LOVE, we promise.
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.
