Grow in pots in the garden or directly in the soil or choose the Unwins Kitchen Garden Herb Kit for great results.

It’s perfect for summer and would make a great gift.

It contains flowerpots, seed compost and an attractive wooden windowsill planter.

Step 2

Carefully fill each of the flowerpots with the compost. and firm down gently. Reserve a small amount to cover the seeds after sowing

Sow the seeds onto the compost surface.

Cover over with a thin layer of reserved compost

Step 4

Place the pots inside the windowsill planter.

Label each pot and water gently with tepid water.
