Sorry for any disappointment! but we're now sold out of herbs. We'll re-stock early in 2018!

Herbs, in most cases, are tough wild plants which when spoilt by the lush conditions of a garden, will thrive and romp away. It's a myth that all herbs like full sun, even good old basil likes partial shade at midday. So when planting your garden, you can divide your plants into two sections, those like Thyme, Sage, Rosemary, French Tarragon and Oregano that like full sun and those that like partial shade, such as Rocket, Sorrel, Mizuna, Mustard, Parsley and Chervil. 

When growing herbs in containers, use a soil based compost, such as John Innes potting compost, this is because there are very few herbs that grow in peat and a soil-based compost retains moisture which is a must to stop containers drying out. Water containers in the morning rather than evening - this gives the plants a chance if the temperatures are hot during the day, especially for containers grown in full sun. Feed container plants weekly from March to September using a proprietary feed. This keeps the plants healthy and helps them produce leaves, especially on 'cut and come again' salads.
