Other information

We recommend you unpack your herbs immediately upon arrival and give them a light watering. Some herbs may have been trimmed back – this is completely normal and will allow the plant to bush out.

The herbs can be grown in the pots they arrive in, but they would benefit long term from being potted on into slightly bigger pots or if suitable, being planted out into the garden.

The height information given for the herbs is the typical height to expect once the herb is planted and established in the ground.

We are always happy to offer growing advice either by email or telephone.
