Autumn is a perfect time for planting new herbs

The warm days and damp soil make conditions ideal.

Viola Freckles

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

Well known favourites include both traditional sweet violets and the beautiful Viola Freckles. These small plants when planted in groups can make a colourful impact in borders and containers.

Some of the thymes are early to flower and this is an ideal time for planting ready for next season, either individual specimens or a whole creeping thyme lawn! First to bloom are the upright orange thyme with pale lilac flowers and highly scented foliage, and the bright purple flowers of creeping caraway thyme come along at the same time in May.

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.

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.

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.
