Potted Herb Plants
In the Spring of 2017 I was very happy to come across some elegant, biodegradable, brown pots made using husk fibre from annual crops. These are called Vipots and they are meant to last around 5 years or will degrade completely in 9-18 months if they are put on the compost heap. I got so inspired about these that I bought several boxes full and re-started my herb nursery dream and began propagating.....
I have grown these herbs myself according to organic principles, either from seed or cuttings from my own plants. I use a sustainable, peat-free compost called Silvragrow. The labels are written on wooden lolly pop sticks; common names on one side and Latin names on the other. Therefore there is no plastic whatsoever to end up in landfill.
The herb plants will be for sale for a few days per month at Ceres Natural Foods in Yeovil, or occasionally at various village fairs in my local area. See the Events page for dates. I may well set up a mail order service in the future.
