Create your own nectar garden

The Curry Plant, named due to the smell of its leaves, is a lovely perennial herb with silver-grey foliage and sunny-yellow flowers.

The leaves form a bushy habit and have a strong curry-like scent,  above which, from summer through to autumn, sits a dome of small yellow flowerheads.

The Curry plant is an excellent source of nectar for bees and other beneficial insects.

Dome of small yellow flowerheads

The Curry Plant is an evergreen perennial herb with a bushy habit.  It is easy to grow, resistant to heat and drought and makes an exotic addition to sunny borders and in the herb garden.  It is not the plant used to flavour traditional curry dishes.

Plant Care

Cut stems back in spring to maintain the shape of the plant and promote new growth.

Curry Plants are available in 9 cms pots, but to reduce use of plastic we reuse our pots and supply plants wrapped in newspaper.  We mix and use our own compost.
