This pretty native perennial is widely distributed throughout Britain, although it’s less common in the West Country and East Anglia. It favours a dry soil and is often found on slopes, cliffs and outcrops of rock. Hugely attractive to bees and butterflies. It’s often included in ‘cottage garden’ plantings, where its informal habit and its pretty, lilac-blue flowers strike an appealing note. The seeds provide a valuable food source for several species of birds. Herbalists and apothecaries would press the plants and use the juice as remedy for skin complaints, some going so far as to believe that it could provide a cure for dandruff and freckles.
Each week the plants to complete orders are selected from the nursery, packaged and dispatched, with plants usually delivered to you the day after dispatch. 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 Tracked 48 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 occasionally 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.

Hot & Spicy combines the easy-growing traits of oregano with the heat of a mild chilli pepper. Oval grey, green slightly hairy leaves that have a strong flavour, making a great addition to Mexican and Mediterranean dishes. A compact variety with trailing stems and the small flowers in late summer.
