Herbs

Younger plants brought to market

Kitchen herbs include perennials such as thyme and lavender, biennials such as parsley, and annuals like basil. They are all usually propagated from seed or cuttings. Nowadays, more and more young plants are being brought to market. That’s because the plants are established faster and with less waste. So the cycle is reduced and revenues increased.

A range of specialist products

Herb seedlings can be grown direct in pots or started off in trays. Both methods require high-quality substrate. We have excellent substrates for herbs in our portfolio. If you combine them with our 100% biodegradable Jiffy Pots, there’s no need to de-pot when it comes to transplantation. Herbs can also be grown very successfully in coir. Start them in our efficient Jiffy Growblocks and replant them later in Jiffy Growbags.
