So, you would like to have some fresh herbs to enhance your favorite dishes
but you don't want to have to till and maintain a separate garden just dedicated to herbs - NOT A PROBLEM. Most herbs
are so beautiful, they can often be worked into your existing annual or perennial gardens. Also, many herbs can be grown
successfully in containers set out in your garden or in a sunny area on a porch or patio. We will be offering a selection
of 25-30 varieties of culinary herbs in 4" pots which you can enjoy all season long.
Herbs in 4" square pots will be available for $4.50 each.
Here are five simple ways to incorporate
herbs into your landscape:
just two feet along one side of a pathway or sidewalk and plant with herbs.
Grow herbs in planters and window boxes
along the sunny side of the house.
Grow herbs inside on a sunny windowsill. Parsley, rosemary and chives grow well indoors.
Build a raised bed on top of a patch of lawn near the house.
Add herbs to an existing vegetable or flower garden.
In the smaller of our greenhouses, you will find a selection of LAVENDER plants such as 'Phenomenal', a Zone 4 lavender.
Phenomenal is an English lavender with rich purple flowers and can grow to a height of 32 inches. Other reliable varieties
such as 'Provence' and 'Munstead', 'Hidcote', will also be offered.
The smaller house will also have a nice selection of the very popular Fairy Garden Plants; these little beauties
are very popular with gardeners of all ages. The Garden Shed will also have a selection of fairy garden accessories.
A selection of sempervivums (chicks and hens) will also be available. Succulent "temperennials" in 3"
pots continue to be a big hit with many of our customers who used them as annuals in fairy gardens as well as using them for
house plants - SMALL plants but BIG-time gardening fun! A cactus mix in 2" pots will also be available.
