Bergamot is a hardy perennial which will attract wildlife to your garden. Bergamot produces distintive flowerheads in varying shades of red, each consisting of lots of curving tubular flowers growing from a central point, creating a dome of petals. If deadheaded regularly it can bloom from early summer to early autumn.
Leaves can be used in salads, teas and cool summer drinks. They have a savoury but fruity aroma which enhances foods such as vegetables and jellies. The flavour works well with pork and veal. The flowers can also be used in salads.
Also known as bee balm, bee balm tea plant, fragrant balm, hare mint, Indian feathers, Indian plume, lad’s love, low balm, mountain mint, Oswego tea, Robin-run-around, rose balm, sweet bergamot
Each week the plants to complete orders are selected from the nursery, packaged and dispatched daily, with plants usually delivered to you the next day. Each potted plant will arrive individually wrapped and the greatest of care will be given to ensure they arrive fresh and there is no damage during transportation. Orders aren't sent out on a Friday to reduce the risk of plants still being in transit over the weekend, although in our experience if plants are delayed we find they usually travel very well.
Hetty will send you an email once your order has been dispatched. For plant orders we use a DPD 24 hour service, although this isn’t guaranteed, DPD will send you an email and/or SMS messages to let you know how your order is tracking and the expected one hour delivery time slot. If you may not be available to take delivery of your order please enter alternative instructions (maximum of 50 characters) in your order details. Hetty highly recommends downloading the DPD App as you can track your order and update delivery instructions if need be.
Non-plant only orders may be sent via a Royal Mail 48 hour service.
You can also view the status of your order if you have registered for a Hetty's account, not if you have shopped as a guest.
Many plants are 'ready now' and available to dispatch in the current dispatch cycle whilst other plants can be 'pre-ordered' to be be delivered in a few weeks. Hetty may at her discretion sometimes chose to split an order for no additional charge.
With over 200 varieties of plants grown over the season one of our biggest challenges is to predict the exact number of plants available at any one time. We get it right most of the time but with so many factors affecting plants occaisionally when we go to select the plants for an order we find the plants are not available to pick. This can be for a number of reasons such as the weather delaying plants being ready in a new batch or plants nearing the end of a batch not being of a high enough quality. Hetty will make contact if your order is affected to discuss the next step which could be to offer a substitute, place your order on hold or to provide a refund.
