There's nothing like the taste of herbs picked fresh from your own garden! They're so easy to grow, whether in beds, borders, containers or on windowsills and with our full range of seeds and plants, growing your own herbs has never been easier. Many herbs can also be grown all the year round and will save you buying expensive supermarket produce.
Sage: The soft blue-green leaves of sage are ideal for adding their rich flavour to meats and stuffing. This hardy sub-shrub is an essential herb for adding to the Sunday roast but also makes an attractive plant in the perennial border. The flavour of the leaves will be best when growing sage in warm, dry conditions. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 90cm (36").
Thyme: One of the most useful kitchen herbs for stews, stuffing's and bouquet garni. This aromatic, evergreen thyme will grow almost anywhere in containers, rock gardens, borders, and even cracks in paving. Ideal for creating low, matt forming groundcover that will attract bees to the tiny, pink blooms. Thyme is particularly useful in coastal areas where it copes well with winds and dry conditions. Height: 30cm (12”). Spread: 35cm (14”).
Parsley: is much more than a garnish. Its fresh, green flavour can lift and enhance mushrooms, sauces and soups and make a real difference to iceberg lettuce.
This hardy biennial is one of the most popular herbs for culinary use as a garnish, flavouring sauces and pastry, and associating particularly well with fish. With a stronger flavour than curled varieties, this 'Flat-leaved' or 'Italian' Parsley makes a useful, low maintenance addition to herb gardens, or grow parsley indoors on a bright kitchen windowsill. Height and spread: 45cm (18”).
Dill: An exquisite dwarf form of this charming, architectural herb. The delicate, ferny foliage is highly attractive and surprisingly compact, making it ideal for container growing. Excellent in the herb garden and ideal for windowsill growing. Dill is easy to grow and tolerant of most conditions, requiring little maintenance. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 20cm (8").
