Product Description

Never has there been a better time to plant a herb garden and reap the benefits of producing your own fresh, healthy food. And, of course, they are a pleasure to grow and make a pretty display.

Making use of home gardens for kitchen produce has always been a sensible thing to do and this collection of 12 plug plants provides an easy and enjoyable way to establish some fabulous herb varieties. They are easy to grow and harvest, take up very little space and give you almost instant results – there's no hanging about for months while they mature!

Growing your own herbs will encourage you to be more creative with your cooking and perhaps explore other ways to be inventive with herbs. Try drying any surplus for use in the kitchen through the winter months – even when dried, their flavour will be more authentic and intense than shop-bought herbs. You can even mix the dried leaves together as an aromatic pot pourri for your home.

Planting herbs is also a great way to get the kids involved in gardening – and they will enjoy eating the results!

This mixed collection of 12 plug plants provides one of the simplest ways of growing attractive herbs for pleasure and culinary use. It includes 7 of the more popular kitchen garden varieties: Mint, Thyme, Sage, Garlic Chives, Parsley, Tarragon and Rosemary.

Top Tips

Pick little and often to encourage bushier plants and young leaves for cooking.

Care Guide

  • Most herbs thrive in ordinary garden soil, as long as it has good drainage.
  • On receipt, unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour. If you can’t do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they will quickly recover. Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • Pot up herb plugs and grow them on in warm, frost-free conditions until all risk of frost has passed. Alternatively, plant them out directly into their final positions outside when there is no further risk of frost.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good-quality, multi-purpose compost, or pot them into a large container to be situated near your kitchen door.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.
