UK: Sandwell couple cultivate business growing exotic herbs in tight spaces

Andrew and Kate Perry, from Rowley Regis, have spent the last few years cultivating a one-of-a-kind herb-growing business that focuses on growing herbs and vegetables in a confined space.

Urban Herbs was created over a decade ago, focusing on growing and sustaining all manners of cooking and mixing herbs, all while providing knowledge on quirky but flavourful plants.

The business is now developing an online profile, where it has received a huge following by suggesting ways to create your herb garden in confined spaces.

Andrew Perry, 36, said: "Our business took off over lockdown, and all of our regular trading events got canceled, so we decided to send the herbs via mail and to create social media content. "It just exploded, we created these how-to guides on growing herbs. Three years on, and my personal social media account has 114,000 followers, and the business one has 50,000. It just took off. We even dispatch nationwide now."
