Ingredients for tisanes

Hi there. I'm new to this site, and I have a question that I hope someone might be able to help me with.
I drink a lot of herbal and fruit teas, and I'd like to start creating my own combinations rather than just buying teabags, but I have no idea where I could buy the dried herbs, fruit and flowers that I'd use - things like elderflowers, peppermint, dried apple, etc. Obviously you can get small jars of cooking herbs & spices in supermarkets, but does anyone know what kind of place would sell stuff like this in larger quantities, or has things like elderflowers? I live in Sheffield, England, if that's any help. Thank you!

I used to get dried elderflowers at Culpeper, but their online shop didn't seem to have it ;-(

I did a quick check and the Daily Bread online shop have mint and dried apple in large quantities. I haven't used this site, but I use the Cambridge branch of Daily Bread for stocking up on wholefoods in what might be described as catering quantities.

If you can wait for a while for the elderflowers, you could pick and dry your own--preferably away from busy roadsides.
