Handmade in Leicestershire

We’re busy planting herbs for our next batch of handmade soaps:

Spring is in the air and things are busy at Cooks Lane. We’re sowing hardy annuals like calendula, sweet peas and dill under cover as well as using herbs dried last year in our lovely herbal soap creations.

With a decade of experience in making lovely handmade herbal soaps you can be sure that there are no nasties just nourishing, natural oils.

You can order them all on our shop pages. Or why not visit us at Ashby and Bosworth farmers’ markets – checks the events page for details. Look forward to seeing you!


About us

Welcome to Cooks Lane Herbs! We are a small family-run herb nursery – small because we grow everything in our back garden in Wigston, Leicestershire. We’re passionate about herbs – growing them, cooking with them, or drying them and turning them into all sorts of fabulous products.

We don’t use any chemicals and all our plants are grown without propagators or electric heat sources.

From what started as a hobby several years ago has become a thriving nursery with more than 60 varieties, from traditional kitchen herbs to our “historic herb” collection – unusual ancient herbs you may not have heard of.

Please feel free to browse the plants and products and if you’d like to know more or you have any special requests (we can also supply herbal bouquet, wedding favour soaps or soaps customised for your shop or business), take a look at the about our products page or just get in touch!

We’re happy to help with any queries. If you’d prefer to have a chat in person then look out for us at Ashby and Market Bosworth Farmers’ Markets every month and at events throughout Leicestershire, Rutland and beyond. Check out our news page to find out where we’ll be.

Look forward to meeting you!

Sian and Richard
