Spring’s a-springin’

Spring’s a-springing and it’s all go on the herb farm – everything grows so quickly at this time of year! Herb seeds are transforming into proper, grown-up herb plants, rooted cuttings have promising root balls, and we’re releasing new herb plants into stock for mail order every day.

It’s such an exciting time of year: suddenly all the fruits of our labour – nurturing tiny herb seeds and rooted cuttings, and over-wintering hardy perennial herbs – are rewarding us with that beautiful, luscious, leafy green of spring. The primroses are in flower, and perennials shoots are popping up all over the place.

There’s nothing quite so uplifting as going into the glasshouse or poly tunnels at this time of year and seeing new herbs standing up, tall, strong and sturdy. A drop of sunshine and their herby aromas already fill the air.
