“Such a lovely spot to browse around – great plants” Charlotte Fairclough Wakefield 

We’re proud of our personal service and support for community life and we join gardeners the world over using herbs for  culinary, medicinal and aromatic purposes.  

Our passion for herbs began around fifteen years ago, when presented with the challenge of a new garden, we discovered Mediterranean herbs were happy and at home in poor soil. From a few plants of marjoram our love for herbs ‘grew’. 

 

Herbs are so rewarding – a walk through any garden containing herb plants, is a walk through the past and the present. There are ancient names and stories attached to the folklore of herb uses, their value in ancient civilizations as cures, and now a wealth of new interest in cooking with herbs.

 

To touch, feel and breathe in the aroma of herbs on a late summer’s afternoon is to perhaps begin to understand the value of growing plants, looking after them and appreciating their true value in our daily lives.
