People have been asking about the herbs that we carry, so here is a list with information and some pictures, (All available in a 4" pot):
Lemon Balm - Is used in teas and essential oils - I love to plant it where it will get brushed against near walkways, it is marginally hardy (zone 4) so it may overwinter if you have a sheltered spot for it
Cilantro - is used in Mexican and Asian cooking, I love it's fresh flavour added in salads, soups and tacos.
Basil - who doesn't already love basil?
Chives - perennial from the onion family, great chopped up in salad, or on potatoes
Thai Basil - spicier basil, can be used in place of regular basil
Lemon Basil - lemon scented basil - a fresh change in your pesto!
Parsley - great for everyday cooking and salads
Oregano - we have had a fantastic crop of Oregano this year, we are excited to dry some ourselves this summer!
Catnip - anyone with a cat will be popular with your furry friend with this herb! Mine like it right off the plant, dry it and save for the winter months.
Sage - mmm, sage always reminds me of turkey soup. Great in full sun!
Thyme - a creeping plant, great along walkways and sunny areas.
Rosemary - great for barbecued meats, needs hot sun to really do well.
Mint - I love mint! It has so many uses (mojitos anyone?) I dry my extra leaves for tea in the winter. This one is invasive - I plant in a pot so I don't have to fight with it staying in it's allotted space.
Chocolate Mint - NOT YET AVAILABLE - coming soon
Lavender - NOT YET AVAILABLE - coming soon
Stevia - popular as a sweetener/sugar replacement
I am hoping to get my Sweet Grass plant going - the plan is to offer smudge sticks mixed with lavender or sage down the road when it gets large enough.
That's it for now, I will end this post with a slideshow of herbs :) Have a great week and we hope to see you at the greenhouse or at Spring Fest soon!
