Quality Herb Plants for the Local Gardener
We have much to be thankful for as we start our 18th growing season.Last October, Don was in the ER with chest pain and subsequently survived a cardiac arrest, stent placement and a femoral artery hemorrhage.He's doing well now but as we age, find that our energy levels are not the same. So we are planning to sell again from home and may attend a few markets and festivals this year.

We will have Betty's Blue, Dutch Mill, Grosso, Grappenhall, Green Dentata, Gros Bleu, Hidcote, Provence, Royal Velvet, Impress Purple, Sharon Roberts, Super, Tucker's Early, Hidcote Giant, Silver Frost, Phenominal,Seal, Sachet and a few others. Some are culinary, others for sachets,bouquets and lavender oil.
