the season of preparation

The Autumn season is arriving, the days are still sunny and warm but the morning and evening temperatures are cooler. The plants have produced flowers and leaves and are now delivering their valuable constituents to their root systems so this is the time of the year when the roots are their most potent. The digging of roots is the reminder of another change of season and to stock the medicine cabinet with a range of products that protect and prevent winter ills. 


Enjoy our luscious herbal body butters and creams, delightful tasting teas, infused medicinal oils, tonics and healing salves.


Seasonal workshops and tours designed to explore the changes in the garden and use of plants to make fabulous products.


This programme offers a thorough instruction in the growing, harvesting, processing & manufacture of herbal products.


Retreats to empower you with a feeling of wellness & inspire you to feel good about yourself. Think beach, spa resort & daily yoga.
