This kit includes everything you will need to begin growing your own herbs from scratch. You’ll have a range of herbs at your fingertips and they will be even tastier knowing you’ve grown them yourself!
The kit includes:
- 1x wooden herb planter and chalk
- 4x peat growing plugs
- 4x zinc pots
- 4x peat growing pots
- 1x garden snips
- 1x packet Basil Basilico Genovese seeds
- 1x packet Coriander Coriandrum Sativum seeds
- 1x packet Garlic Chinese Chives Seeds
- 1x packet Parsley (flat leaved) Titan seeds
There are four different packets of seeds included in this kit, allowing you to grow a wide range of herbs. Basil Basilico Genovese has a strong, clove-like aroma alongside traditional shiny green leaves. Instead of chopping the leaves, you should tear them to keep the aroma. They are ideal for adding to stir fries or making your own pesto. Coriander is an extremely popular, versatile herb and is great in spicy dishes like curry or to add a unique flavour to salads. Garlic Chinese Chives have a mild garlic flavour and should be used like chives; add them to sauces, salads and stir fries. Parsley Titan is smaller and a darker green than other flat leaf varieties; it has an intense flavour and is ideal in soups, stews or when added sparingly to salads.
This chalk board herb set is well presented in an attractive wooden box and will make an ideal present for any cooking enthusiast. The handy chalk board design allows you to easily keep track of what you are growing.
