The Secret Herb Garden is to reopen its nursery and garden after offering a collection-only service.

The business closed in March due to the lockdown restrictions on place to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Since early April, the team were offering a contactless collection service of herbs, plants, teas and the Old Curiosity herbal hand sanitiser.

During this time they also launched a Secret Garden Honey, which was available to collect from the garden.

Now they've announced that the Secret Herb Garden herb nursery and garden will reopen.

Posting on their social media, owners Hamish and Liberty said: "We are so delighted to announce that we are going to open our beloved Herb Nursery and garden this Friday.

"We have embraced this challenge and put all our energy into evolving our garden and it has never looked so beautiful.

"Some of you may have visited our honesty box at the front gate or bought from our contactless collection and your support here has been greatly appreciated and we will keep this service running.

"We have totally re landscaped the entrance and plant display area, we’ve been busy increasing our herb nursery stock (over 50 different mints alone)!

"We created the garden as a green space for adults and children alike to feel the subtle but powerful presence of nature and we can’t tell you how happy we are to open our gates again.

"We would love to see you - our nursery shop is open 7 days a week, 10am until 4pm for plants, compost, teas and our honey but all we ask is that you are respectful of the social distancing that is in place.

"In regards to the cafe, please keep your eye out for updates on our social platforms.

"We know life has been surreal recently but we hope that our little herb garden can offer you a bit of space to breath in nature."

The Secret Herb Garden would normally be hosting their popular full moon dinners, along with guest chef pop ups such as last year's successful nights with Barry Bryson of Cater Edinburgh.

As well as this, their cafe is a must-visit for many who enjoy the garden but it will sadly remain closed for now.
