About Us





  • Our herbs, fruit & veg are potted up in organic peat free* and stock free compost.
  • All our other plants are grown here in organic and peat free* compost.  Or sourced from nurseries that do not use peat wherever possible.
  • We use local suppliers and support independents and small businesses wherever possible.
  • We never have and never will use synthetic fertilisers, hormones or pesticides.
  • *We only use peat washed naturally into rivers and lakes not dug from precious peat bogs.
