Downside Nursery’s owner, Lorraine Young planting out herbs

Fresh herbs are now such an important ingredient in our cooking, where would we and our master chefs be without them?   We sell a good range of culinary herbs. If you are short of space, why not try one of our herb planters or hanging baskets – you could order one to suit your exact size and contents. Sooo good to add fresh herbs to the BBQ!

Readers of Alys Fowler in The Guardian will be pleased to see we have Leaf Celery included, and have you discovered Stevia yet – probably best known as a source of natural sweeteners.

We grow the majority of popular herbs and this is what we will have had at the start of the season:

To see the list of herbs that we have in stock at the beginning of the season, please see the list below; this does not however guarantee availability. Conversely, there will be additions to our list during the year, so if you are looking for something particular, do ask – we might be able to help. Call us on 01225 862 392 or email us.
