Autumn is a perfect time for planting new herbs

Cowslips

The warm days and damp soil make conditions ideal.

Now is a good time to review your borders or herb beds and plant up to fill the gaps, or create a new area or container ready for next year.

Well known favourites include cowslips and sweet violets. These small plants when planted in groups can make a colourful impact in borders and containers.


Some of the thymes are early to flower. First to bloom are the upright orange thyme pale lilac flowers with highly scented foliage, and the bright purple flowers of creeping caraway thyme come along at the same time in May.

Rosemary Blue Lagoon

Another very common herb which is great for spring colour is Rosemary with lovely flowers early in the year which are an added bonus for early pollinators.

There are many different varieties of rosemary available but for flower power we highly recommend Blue Lagoon which has the most amazing blue flowers along its stems in early spring.

Unusual and with a stunning impact, is the white flowered rosemary.

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.
