Avoid spending money on expensive jars of dried herbs at the supermarket by growing your own fresh and flavoursome herbs in your kitchen garden.
We send you a plant each of six of the most popular herbs in the kitchen and suggest you use them in the following ways to add to your arsenal of delicious home-cooked meals.
Basil Sweet Italian: Essential for Italian dishes, Basil is a highly decorative, aromatic herb whether grown on the windowsill or outside. Basil needs well drained soil and lots of sun.
Coriander: Coriander is a pungent, leafy herb which is used in full-flavoured Asian cooking.
Parsley Moss Curled A wonderful, versatile herb with a strong-flavour. We recommend you chopped Moss Curled parsley to add to a tabbouleh – a Middle-Eastern dish with fresh Mediterranean flavour.
Parsley Italian Plain: Impress guests and try adding to home-made gnocchi for a fresh and almost grassy flavour.
Dill: Both seeds and leaves are used as flavouring for lamb, fish and sauces. With a strong aniseed flavour, dill is also very attractive as a garnish.
Sufficient to fill two 30cm (12in) pots this is a great space-saving collection of essential herbs.
It makes a great gift too to an avid gardener or cook in your life who already has a library of cookbooks and would like something culinary but a little bit different.
