we do offer bulk amounts for a much cheaper rate. If you are interested
in bulk dried herbs but don’t see them listed please send us a request.

Live Plants Questions

1. Once we receive your order, we pick out your herbs, dunk them in a bucket of Eco Seaweed solution to ensure they’re happy, and take them to the packaging area.

2. Here, we tape the pot to ensure stability, and wrap the plant carefully, checking that the plant is undamaged and safe. We then securely pack the plant in our custom boxes ready to head off.

3. We then send your plants to you via express post - the quickest possible way to get a healthy plant from our nursery to your garden bed
or pots.

4. When your order leaves our Nursery you will receive an email with a tracking number, so you can follow its journey to your place.

🎦 How we send Herb Plants in the post

1. Remove plants from the box, and unwrap the plants carefully. Take care when unwrapping the newspaper around each plant, and remove the tape by cutting it from the tubes.

2. Submerge the tube in either a container of water or weak seaweed solution until air bubbles stop. This should take no more than a few minutes. Don’t leave your tubes sitting in the water. We generally do this immediately before planting, but also suggest doing it as soon as you unwrap your plants.

3. It’s really important to plant your herbs as soon as possible. The herbs need a lot of care when they are in small tubes like these, as they can dry out very quickly. Place them in a filtered sun position and dunk the tube in a bucket of water once a day for a couple of minutes then let it drain freely.
