About & Contact

After many years in accountancy and starting a family I felt the need for a change of direction so learnt how to set up a website (a steep learning curve!) and share my passion for herbs. For as long as I can remember I have always loved gardening, cooking and craft activities and for the last 11 years have been very interested in the versatility of herbs; how they can be used in all of the aforementioned pastimes. I joined the Herb Society and also the Hertfordshire Herb Group in the year 2000 after completing a one year course on herbs at the Horticultural Correspondence College.

My main aim in creating this website is to provide useful information to inspire you and any children in your life to find out how to grow herbs and use them in cooking, to enhance your health and lots of other wonderful and creative ways.

I have attended various courses and workshops but often had to search around a lot on the internet to find out where and when a suitable course was taking place so I post a summary of course providers and events once a quarter via my blog.

My aim is to constantly improve the site and services to you so feedback is always useful.  Feel free to contact me with comments, suggestions, report an error, suggest topics or products you would like to see in my online shop.

The quickest and most efficient way to contact me is via email: hello AT madaboutherbs DOT co DOT uk or I can be contacted by telephone: 07981 429647. I’ll do my best to reply to any queries as soon as possible but please allow up to 7 days.

I hope you enjoy the website.

Happy Herbing!
