Winter Hanging Basket Collection

Availability

What do you get?

A specially selected collection of six plants - four varieties that we love to plant in a hanging basket to provide interest throughout the winter season.

 Hanging baskets are a great way to grow herbs during the winter.  The varieties in this collection are all varieties that we love growing in a hanging basket through the colder months.  They provide fantastic winter interest, aroma and flavour.

The flavours that you are going to be enjoying:

Trailing Rosemary x3 - we always design and plant our winter hanging baskets around this variety.  The effect that it gives is simply perfect as the Rosemary stems spill and trail from the hanging basket.  This variety has been bred specifically to trail and some of the chefs that we work with report that they enjoy using this variety more than traditional Rosemary as the flavour is so delicate and soft. 

Creeping Lemon Thyme - a low growing, carpet forming Thyme with a strong lemon flavour that is perfect in a hanging basket.  It covers the surface of the basket with it's gorgeous aromatic and dense foliage.

Thyme 'Caborn and Roses' – another low growing Thyme that is a little taller than the Creeping Red Thyme but with the same gorgeous aromatic foliage.  It likes to tumble and spill from the basket cascading it's texture and fragrance as it travels.

Orange Thyme – at upright evergreen and highly aromatic variety that makes the perfect centre piece for your hanging basket.  On a cold winter day the aroma of Orange Thyme is so refreshing and provides a much needed lift for the senses.  Love this variety so much.

 

 

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

 

Pre-order delivery option

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.

Order Now delivery option

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.

Dispatch information

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.

 

Packaging


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.

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.
