We have been busy throughout the autumn to give you lots of new herbs to try this spring.
New herb introductions to look out for in 2022 include:
Already growing on and nearly ready for sale we have Agrimony – an unusual medicinal herb with amazing flower spikes in late summer, plus a lovely purple leafed form of Angelica – Angelica Ebony.
As spring progresses, we shall be adding Rosemary Green Ginger a fabulous and much requested cultivar to give a flavour of ginger to your cooking, plus a much-anticipated new creeping thyme – Thymus Pink Magic – very vigorous with large pale pink flowers.
Our seed collection of annual herbs is selling well:
Coriander, dill and borage to name but a few. These grow far better sown direct from seed than bought in pots, and new seeds will be added to our range from early 2022 ready for you to plant.
New for 2022 we hope to have we hope to have Summer Savory and Daucus carota 'Dara' – the wild carrot – much in demand by flower arrangers and guaranteed to fill your flower bed with colour from mid-Summer onwards.
Our new range "Just beyond the Herb Garden" features attractive flowering perennials with herby associations. Later in the spring we shall have several new additions for you to plant up in your borders and containers. All designed to mix with and enhance your herb planting.

Creeping thymes like a dry sunny position and are ideal for growing in gravel areas and rockeries, between paving stones and for planting thyme paths and lawns. They withstand walking on and are totally hardy.
Check out our article Prostrate herbs for cracks and crevices, walls and paths for more details.
We have selected a range of thymes with red, pink and white flowers and also a variety of leaf types and colours to give you as wide a choice as possible for planting to suit your garden design.
Lots of our herbs like dry conditions, why not add variety to your creeping thyme planting by adding lawn chamomile and double flowered chamomile for their fragrant foliage.
Try adding some creeping savory, Dianthus deltoides 'Flutterburst', Helianthemum 'Ben Ledi', Helianthemum 'Ben Fhada', Helianthemum 'Fireball', and Armeria Alba or Germander Silver to extend the flowering season and add extra interest and colour to your beds and containers.
