Vitacress Herbs was involved with the RHS Malvern Spring Festival 2015 (7th to 10th May) where it supplied 60 pots of fresh living herbs including rosemary, basil and mint for its Spring Festival Atrium, attended by 10,000 visitors and two star Michelin chef Raymond Blanc.

Raymond Blanc, who has a passion for growing and cooking seasonal produce, and grows an impressive 70 varieties of herbs at the infamous Oxfordshire restaurant Le Manoir aux Quat Saison, said “Fresh herbs are a little bit of magic in your dish, whether its chive, tarragon or lime leaves. A simple plain salad for example can be transformed in minutes and is enlivened by just adding a sprinkling of fresh basil leaf, and with a nice Pinot Noir it would be perfect!
