Verbascum thapsus or Mullein
A fine example of Verbascum thapsus or Mullein growing wild in a corner of the Herbs In A Bottle car park. As you can see it is a magnificent and beautiful sight. The herb is currently in season.
We never use herbs collected from unsustainable sources.
Our source of Verbascum thapsus is a small specialist herb farm in Egypt where Mullein is grown on the alluvial soils of the Nile delta. The unique combination of soil, water and sunshine produces some of the finest Mullein in the world. The crops are hand-cultivated, and almost entirely free from environmental pollution.
