We are lucky in that we have a very good Herb nursery near us , it's called .. Norfolk Herbs ..I've been up there today , needless to say one or two more herbs jumped out at me , they had a pink Jacobs Ladder in the herb garden , he even went so far as to dig a piece up for me and didn't charge for it , this is their No. if anyone like ordering Herbs on-line ... www.norfolkherbs.co.uk

Would be good to have a proper herb garden Amy. Sounds like you are a valued customer. Are all herbs planted together.

I use to have them in a herb bed that Tony made for me Dawn it's a nice brick circle with bricks left out at intervals for my herbs to be planted it looked nice when the herbs were all new and little but they don't stay like that they get over grown and too big so that you can't see the brick work , I keep some in there and others in the veg garden ...

I love Thyme have a big collection now as I love the little mats they make over the paths....and the perfume when you tread on them.

I'm hoping to plant some in my front garden this year they are so pretty. It's a shame they don't seem to like my slope or I would have them on there too

You will be pleased with it Annella , I wonder why they don't like your slope ,you would think it would grow anywhere as it's a herb ,strange !
