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. In our large greenhouse, we will be offering a selection of 25-30 varieties of culinary herbs
which you can enjoy all season long.
Herbs in 4" square pots
will be available for $4.50 each or 3 for $12.75.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 SIX
varieties of lavender plants such as 'Super Blue'. Super Blue is a hardy Zone 4 variety that has rich blue
flowers on silver grey foliage. 'Phenomenal', also a Zone 4 lavender is offered again this year. Phenomenal is
an English lavender with rich purple flowers and can grow to a height of 32 inches. Other reliable varieties such as

fairy gardens as well as using them for house plants - SMALL plants but BIG-time gardening fun!
