I've tried a number of plugins including Add Meta Tags and Meta SEO Pack which add a meta tag description to the home page.

But my home page is static so the description is added to my blog page.

I know I could add them manually but are there any plugins do this?

Do you have the wp_head() function called in your header.php template file? – Brian Fegter Jan 12 '12 at 4:52
yes I'm building a child theme from thematic so i could use the thematic_create_description() filter - themeshaper.com/thematic/guide/?page_id=12 – fxfuture Jan 12 '12 at 6:31

For anyone using Thematic, the thematic_create_description() filter worked nicely.
