Why You'll Love Yates' Range of Herb Seeds
If you want to grow seeds that require minimum effort with a maximum return, herbs are the ideal plant to grow from scratch. Easy to grow in small pots, on balconies, courtyards or windowsills, they can be grown at nearly any time of year, in most environments. Most need little attention to produce leafy and fragrant plants that can be picked over and over again. Packed with flavour, and perfect for children to plant and pick, they’re the ultimate crowd-pleaser. Yates’ wide range of quality herb seeds are available to buy online with free shipping on orders over $50. It’s an easy way to add some tasty greenery to your life.
How to Grow Herb Seeds
Choose a position and prep the soil with Yates Dynamic Lifter Organic Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser which contains slow-release nutrients from manure, fish meal, blood & bone, and seaweed to feed your herbs as they grow.
Seeds should be planted at a depth double their own size, and fine seeds should be sprinkled on the soil, before adding another fine layer of soil or Yates Seed Raising Mix on top.
Water well, and feed regularly with Yates Thrive Natural Vegie & Herb Liquid Plant Food to encourage healthy green foliage.
Keep Slugs and Snails at bay from tempting herbs with Yates Snail & Slug Bait. The pellets contain a bittering agent to help prevent accidental consumption by children and pets, and eventually biodegrade into carbon dioxide and water, so it’s safe to eat produce that has been surrounded by them.
Which Herbs Can I Grow?
Grow your own salad leaves with Yates’s range of leafy greens. Yates Large Leaf Rocket Seeds are quick growing with an abundant harvest and peppery flavour and Yates Wild Rocket Seeds has a stronger peppery flavour.
Herb mixes allow you to grow several different varieties of a single type of herb, so they look interesting, and you get a range of different flavours.

For herbs that will bring a different look to your pots or garden beds, choose grass-like herbs such as Yates Garlic Chives Seed - these grow upright and will bring a more structured look to your garden. Yates Thyme Seeds grows into an attractive bush and needs very little care once established. To bring a decadent feel to window boxes, pots or garden beds, grow Yates Curled Parsley Seeds - this decorative, dark-green plant looks beautiful, is a rich source of vitamins and iron, and makes the perfect garnish on food.
