Herb & Spice Seeds

Home-grown herbs and spices can add wonderful fresh and aromatic flavours to all of your favourite culinary dishes, and they're good for you too.  The quality of home-grown herbs and spices are far superior to their dried and packaged counterparts, which have often lost most of their flavour by the time you get around to using them.  Herbs and spices are not only easy to grow at home, many types are also perennials meaning that they only have to be planted once and you can continue to harvest from them for many years.  The full range of open-pollinated and heirloom herb and spice seeds currently available from Succeed Heirlooms is listed below.
