Autumn is a perfect time for planting new herbs …


Herb Trough for Autumn

The warm days and damp soil make conditions ideal. So 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.

Many of you already grow your herbs in pots and this is a great way of bringing your herbs closer to the house and kitchen for the colder months of the year, making it easier to access them in a downpour or worse! In really severe weather group the containers together close to the house wall for extra shelter.

Lots of hardy culinary herbs are really attractive as well as useful …

There is a variety of coloured foliage – silver, gold, purple and shades of green. These can mix and match to give really lovely bright planters to enhance your outdoor areas.

Plants to try include coloured varieties of Sage, Thyme, Oregano and Marjoram. Along with old favourites like Parsley and Rosemary and spring colour from Violets, Cowslips with added dwarf daffodils.

Watch our home page for availability,

with more details of autumn container planting and some herby recipes as well.
