We are looking forward to the new season of 2017, lots of events on our events page. The garden is beginning to mature and flourish if you belong to a group of garden enthusiasts then book a visit via our Visits page.
When Kim & Rob Hurst first established The Cottage Herbery in 1976 it was primarily with the view to growing quality herbs, aromatic & scented foliage plants.
From the very beginning every plant at the Cottage Herbery has been grown naturally & peat free. The ethos of this being is if you are producing a plant for natural flavouring, healing and fragrance then that plant should be produced naturally. Now also grown on the Nursery is a reasonable selection of hardy perennials and the more unusual edibles.
The peat free compost we use and originally developed is approved and carries its own symbol as the only coir based compost to be truly organic, its trade name is ‘Fertile Fibre’ (visit the links page for the web address).
We care about the quality and health of our plants from every stage of their growth and by the comments from of our customers (many of which are long standing) they can be sure that once planted they ‘grow away’ well.
The Cottage Herbery is an award winning nursery having won numerous awards throughout its career, including the most coveted award; a Chelsea Gold Medal, on more than one occasion.
The Cottage Herbery is also a member of the Herefordshire Horticultural hub, a collective that promotes local grower, businesses and specialists.
