Medicinal herbs have so many amazing uses. Their smells are intoxicating. Many make great teas and are beautiful displayed on your counter during the summer. They are also great because you can harvest them again and again. The plants just keep coming back with more leaves and shoots and blooms for you to use.
Fresh herbs are the key to livening up your cooking. These herbs (oregano, rosemary, sage, spearmint, and thyme) have the added bonus of being perennial. They can be grown for many years in pots or often will overwinter in Minnesota in your garden.
We are partnering with a local vegetable farm, Waxwing Farm, to offer these plant starts for your garden. Their plants are started in their on-farm greenhouse and grown using all organic practices. They are grown with care instead of being mass produced. The varieties we offer are ones which Waxwing grows on their farm for their CSA customers and restaurants in the Twin Cities. These varieties have outstanding flavor and do well in our soils and climate. Your garden will be the envy of the neighborhood.
Each herb plant comes in a 3" plastic pot. These plants will be available starting Friday, May 12th at the farm.
