We try to propagate most of the plants in the nursery ourselves. Some of the herbs in our collections are 'patented' which prevents us from propagating them.

 Not every plant that you can see in the gardens will be in the nursery, but every plant in the nursery can be seen growing in the gardens.

We only propagate our plants vegetatively, thereby ensuing that all the plants for sale are genetically identical to the mother plants you can see growing in the gardens.

We make every effort to ensure that our plants are correctly named and accurately described.





 Taskent, a robust spearmint , ideal for mint sauce, where a strong minty taste is required .
