Sowing seeds is a really fun and rewarding way to fill your kitchen garden with fresh herbs. All the seeds in this set are easy to grow and can give you tasty herbs for a long time. Chives will give a fresh supply of mild onion flavour, while kale is full of healthy homegrown nutrients. Parsley will give a clean but peppery taste, with wasabi rocket packing a much spicier punch. Finish off with calming fragrant chamomile - perfect for brewing tea. There’s no need to buy packs of herbs every time you need a sprig when they’re so easy to grow from seed.
To grow your plants, sow the seeds about 5cm apart in potting trays and put them somewhere warm and bright. Keep the soil moist. When sprouts appear, transfer the plants to 8cm pots and wait for them to grow. It should take about 10-14 days for sprouts to appear, then you’ll have mature plants within 90 days.
You can pick the mature herbs whenever you like, cutting them off as and when you need them.
The kit includes 6 seed packets, with peat-free soil discs and plant labels, so you’re ready to get growing.
