Herb Plants

Growing herbs will lift your cooking to another level - and make your outdoor space look and smell fantastic. With over twenty organic herb varieties, you’re sure to find the best herbs to grow whether you’re planting outdoors or creating an indoor herb garden on the kitchen windowsill.

Choose your herb plants

Love cooking Indian or Asian food? You need freshly-picked Coriander, Bay, Lemongrass and Chives straight from the windowsill. Vietnamese Corianderhas a wonderful lemon-pepper taste and aroma that you won’t find in the supermarket. For Mediterannean cuisines, go for Greek Basil, Bronze Fennel and Greek Oregano; grow Rosemary to add flavour and aroma to your barbecue. Spoilt for choice? Why not start with one of our Herb Collections?

Where to grow your herbs

To create a scented herb garden for your seating area, group planters of fragrant Lemon Balm, https://www.rootsplants.co.uk/products/3-organic-marjoram-plants and Chamomile together. Add Chocolate Mint or Pineapple Mint for a freshly-picked mojito garnish on a warm summer night or plant flowering Wild Bergamot and Borage in your borders. Growing herbs indoors is easy - keep favourites like British Basil, Garden Mint and Flatleaf Parsley in terracotta pots on the kitchen windowsill ready to snip and scatter.

Herb plant care tips

Most herbs are very easy to grow and care for. (Seriously, is there any downside to them?) Most prefer sunny sheltered areas but will thrive in partial shade. With more vigorous growers like Mint, prune lightly every couple of months to keep the plants producing more healthy young leaves. We’ve put together a herb plant care guide with more advice and tips for growing herb plants: Read it here.
