I have 2 new tea towels now available- one features healing herbs and the other heirloom vegetables. Printed on the same good quality material as the others, these make lovely gifts, especially for posting around New Zealand or overseas. This makes 5 designs in my tea towel range and I have been delighted at the interest in them- they are available in varying gift packs in my gift range.

 

New! I now have aprons available the same as my tea towels- great gifts for the cooks in your family- stove or barbecue!They can be found in the gift range link above.

As we are into winter, many of the winter dormant herbs will not be showing, as I like to get them through the winter and put them back in the spring when they have started to shoot- horseradish is one of these. If you would still like to purchase any of these winter dormant herbs, please contact me.
