The herbary: a delight for all the senses

We grow a lot of herbs!  We have by far the best selection in our region of these useful, beautiful plants.  If you are into herbs and you haven't been here yet, you are in for a treat, and a surprise if you thought we only grew natives. 

Here are a few photos from our gardens.  Enjoy!

 

Miniature comfrey and friend.                                                                    Tansy- a welcome bright spot in mid November. 

   

Variegated African Blue Basil.                            Welsh Onions- Gorgeous!                                Chives, Salad Burnet, and a carpet of golden oregano.

Herbs available for 2010.  There are most certainly others that I've forgotten.  Most are listed by common name, some by botanical...

All of our herbs are grown organically. 

At this point in the season (mid-June) we are sold out of many of these, but we do still have a large assortment, and this list is useful in that it gives you an idea of what we grow every year.
