Herbs go very well in pots placed in a sunny position near the kitchen door. Opt for the herb collection, containing a mixture that usually includes mint, chives, sage, parsley and rosemary, if you are planting up a medium-sized container. If your pots are larger, add tarragon, oregano and more chives, and pop in the odd nasturtium seed because their flowers are edible.

Val Bourne - Garden Writer


    This collection of culinary herbs has been grown in 1 litre pots. It will contain six different herbs, but the contents of the collection will vary slightly depending on the season. You could expect one of any of the following to be included in the collection:

  • Garden mint, Mentha - the aromatic leaves are great for using in mint sauce, salads and in summer drinks. Grows to 1x1.5m
  • Green sage, Salvia officinalis - aromatic leaves are valuable for flavouring stuffings, herbal teas and meat dishes. Grows to 80x100cm
  • Chives, Allium schoenoprasum - the edible leaves enhance the flavour of many savoury dishes. Grows to 60x5cm
  • Thyme, Thymus - the aromatic leaves are useful for making bouquet garni, stuffings and sauces. Grows to 30x45cm
  • Flat-leaved parsley, Petroselinum neapolitanum - the chopped leaves are useful as a garnish and for adding to savoury sauces and fish dishes. Grows to 80x60cm
  • Curled parsley, Petroselinum crispum - leaves are great for garnishing and for adding to sauces and fish dishes. Grows to 80x60cm
  • Rosemary, Rosemarinus Officinalis - leaves are great for garnishing and for adding to lamb dishes and stuffing. Grows to 120x60cm
  • Lavender, Lavandula angustifolia - flowers make an interesting addition to cakes and sweets, whilst the leaves can be used similarly to rosemary. Dried stems and flowers can also be used to decorate and perfume the home. Grows to 120x100cm

                    Good basic selection of herbs. Most useful for those starting a herb garden.
                    Those with an established herb bed would probably find too many repeats of herbs they already have

                        The contents can vary so we cannot say for sure, but they usually contain things like parsley, thyme, rosemary, sage and mint.

                        Hello there
                        The mix of herbs will vary according to the season, so the herbs that you might receive in the autumn collection will be a hardier than the herbs in the spring collection, but it depends on what they are as to whether they can be kept outside.
                        Hope this helps.

                        Hi there
                        There are a number of reasons why plants don't flower including too much shade or not enough water or nutrients. It can also be caused by the plant putting on new root growth instead of focusing its energies on producing flowers. I am not really sure why your Cyclamens are not flowering, but given time and the right conditions there is no reason why they won't flower. You can often give them a bit of a push by feeding during the growing season with a high potash fertiliser and applying a generous layer of mulch to conserve moisture.

                    • Q:

                      Discolouration on mint leaves?

                      Hello Crocus!I hope you can help me identify a problem with my mint. I'm growing some herbs on my balcony, and recently I noticed something on my mint leaves. Patches of discolartion with dark spots in them. This morning, I noticed that it has spread to the spearmint and peppermints right next to it, and to the basil which is several feet away (but none of the plants between them). I'd like to know what it is, and how to treat it (pref. organic tratments) and if it is still safe to eat the leaves? Many thanks for your kind help.

                        Hello There, This looks like the results of a sap sucking insect (probably aphids), so the best way to get rid of them is to either squash them (a bit unpleasant) or blast them off with a strong jet of water every time they appear.
