The Cottage Herbery

Kim and Rob Hurst run The Cottage Herbery. Over 40 years experience goes into growing quality, organic, peat-free plants.

As a testament to the quality of their plants the nursery has won of RHS medals from Bronze to Gold at all the major shows around the country including two coveted Chelsea Gold Medals.

They have a keen interest in certain plant families and have private collections of Angelica, Digitalis, Lobelia, Monarda, Rosmarinus and Tropaeleum

Kim and Rob give talks, lectures and workshops and are a RHS Partnership nursery. See their website for full details.

Kim has just published a book: "Hidden Histories: Herbs" brings together the extraordinary and largely forgotten stories of 150 special plants that are still put to culinary, medicinal and cosmetic preparations today. The book includes traditional tips for flavouring a medieval pottage and how certain plants are ideal for poultices and what plants ward off evil spirits.
