Grow Your Own
 

Herbs are easy to grow, they also look and smell fantastic. They are mainly grown for their culinary purposes, or to add fragrance to your borders.

By growing your own herbs in a window box, or pot by the back door, you've got instant access to a fresh cutting for your salads or roast dinners.

Grown on our nurseries we can offer over 50 varieties of herbs for your garden.
