Herb Garden & Plant Centre

herb gardenFrom lavender hedges and chamomile lawns to companion plants and herbs for home remedies, we have them all.

How nice it has been to see so many people keen to re-create a traditional cottage garden complete with useful, scented and softly flowering herbs mingling with the all important vegetables and maybe a chicken or two! Forget all that concrete and decking! A garden should be full of fragrance and colour, bees and butterflies and all manner of delicious produce to eat.
