Their founder, Samuel Ryder (1858-1936), was born near Preston, Lancashire and attended Owen's College, Manchester after his older brother James. Samuel soon left college and initially began working in a shipping merchant. However, the family was forever inspired by their father's passion for gardening... During this era, it became important to grow your own food through farms, gardens and allotments. The Ryder family embraced this movement, wanting to provide seeds by mail at affordable prices to the general public. Today, the Heath & Heather brand retains the same passion for herbs and botanical products that its family founders held back in the early 1900s. The brand still embodies all the traditional principles of growing natural and organic ingredients; aiming to provide effective herbal remedies to a modern population that, more than ever, requires natural solutions to improve health and well-being in crowded or stressful environments. - “Organic Echinacea”: the name Echinacea comes from the Greek word Echininos, meaning “hedgehog”, which refers to Point-looking petals adorning the peep.
