It seems the whole world’s excited about tomorrow’s Royal Wedding, and it’s infectious. Customers have been ordering Papavar orientale ‘Royal Wedding‘ …
..and Myrtle, ‘herb of love’, a sprig of which makes a traditional appearance in the Royal Wedding bouquet. This tradition goes back to the time of Queen Victoria, who planted a sprig of Myrtle from her wedding bouquet in her private garden – and it’s still growing there today!
We’re excited too, and it’s not just Royal Wedding Fever – we’ve got Open Days again, starting Saturday 30th April until Bank Holiday Monday May 2nd. Because we’re mostly an online business, we love Open Days because we can spend all day talking herbs – our passion – with our herb-loving customers.
We’re nearly ready now – the Berry Blue Creative Foods marquee went up this morning, so our visitors can partake of delicious, seasonal, locally grown food and relax during bouts of herb-shopping amongst our 650+ organically grown varieties.
…and the herbs are looking luscious, leafy and some are even flowery – just in time for our Open Days!
