Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.
The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.
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 .

Plant arrived healthy and in good condition. It was well packed and protected.
Perfectly Happy with the delivery and the plant condition. We split the plant into several smaller plants (in a medium tub with compost). All seems well after 2 weeks of growth in the garden.
My herbs arrived carefully packaged and in very good condition. Since planting, they have thrived and we are very much enjoying the citrus flavour
