The pack contains: 

1 x Oregano 'Hot 'n Spicy' (Origanum vulgare 'Hot 'n spicy') Herb in 9cm Pot  

Oregano 'Hot 'n Spicy' prefers a sunny site and does not particularly enjoy prolonged wet winters, but its hardy nature means it can remain evergreen through the winter months. Growing 45-60cm tall and preferring light well-drained soil, this variety has bright green oval leaves which grow profusely on short purple/brown stems, and a very pretty show of purple-pink flowers appears in the summer. Ideal for the front of a border in your herb garden or herbaceous border, a rock or gravel garden,great as an edging plant and good ground cover,  it's also happy in a container. Oregano 'Hot 'n Spicy'  is an extremely aromatic herb, with a very hot spicy flavour. You have been warned! Generally Oregano has a pungent flavour featuring heavily in Mediterranean and Mexican food, it has a great affinity for a variety of foods, especially strong flavours like wine, olives and tomatoes, vegetables, stuffing and egg dishes. It is also characteristic of many Greek dishes (particularly lamb). Oregano's flavour is enhanced with drying and is often sprinkled liberally on pizzas.

 

1 x Thyme 'Lime '(Thymus x citriodorus 'Lime' Herb in 9cm Pot 

Lime Thyme reaches a height of 30 cm and with its small green leaves and pink flowers, it is suitable for planting in the rock garden, herb garden or the front of a border it will also make a very good container plant. Lime Thyme likes a well-drained light soil, and it should not be too rich in nutrients as this will only encourage the plant to grow 'leggy' and lose its compact shape. Being a native of the Mediterranean it needs a place in full sun. Lime Thyme has a strong citrus tang, and is an excellent herb for flavouring stuffings and stews, and is ideal added to a bouquet-garni. Pies and chutneys are also given an extra lift when this aromatic herb is added. It has also been used for many centuries medicinally and its essential oils have been used to treat aches and pains and sprains.

 

1 x Sorrel Buckler-Leaf (Rumex scutatus) Herb in 9cm Pot

Sorrel Buckler Leaf, also known as French sorrel and “Lemon in a Leaf”, is a low-growing, creeping sorrel. It's easy to grow, producing masses of delicious, tangy leaves, which are best eaten raw in salads. This hardy perennial can even withstand freezing winters. Once established, it can be treated as a 'cut and come again' crop. Harvest only young & tender leaves, you can cut off all the leaves & it will rejuvenate the plant. Cut off any flower stalks that appear. Buckler Leaf Sorrel, enjoys a sunny or partially shaded position, and will flourish in most soil types. As with all Sorrel it is easy to propagate, either by seed in the spring or division in the autumn or spring every 3-5 years. Easy to grow, producing clumps of pale green leaves with a good lemon flavour, and once established the plant should produce greens for 8 to 10 years. When picked young, the leaves are very mild tasting; the flavour intensifies with age, so you can pick it at the right tanginess level for your palate. Cooked, the tartness subsides. It can be harvested at baby leaf stage and is a great lettuce substitute .
