Herbs, Saveur Your Flavour

Days are long, nights are warm, and it’s that perfect time of the year for feasting in the garden. Whether you’re just barbequing for one, picnicking in the back yard with little ones, or enjoying a quiet cocktail for two in the evenings, we’ve got what you need to kick your flavors up a notch. I’m talkin’ about herbs!

The ideal combination of easy-peasy and delicious, herbs are some of the most rewarding plants you can grow! They’re bloomiferous, fragrant, often bee and butterfly attracting, and just generally delightful. Whether you’re in need of a fast-growing groundcover, a showy patio plant, a no-muss-no-fuss drought tolerant toughie, an explosion of flowers, or, you know, a garnish… look no further!

Basil 'African Blue'
If you haven't planted Basil yet this year, it's not too late! This cold-tolerant variety keeps on going right up until first frost! Plus, it's one of the most floriferous varieties we've ever seen! Use the leaves in pesto and the flowers in teas.
Yerba Buena (Satureja douglasii)
This California native herb gives you delicious minty flavor, but in a non-invasive, clay tolerant, deer resistant, shade-loving, evergreen groundcover form! Perfect for making minty teas or as a garnish. Hardy to USDA zone 7!
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)
Delicious lemon-scented foliage makes this a perfect along-the-path plant. It's a great way to add bright citrusy notes (without the mouth-puckering acidity) to salads, teas, and mixed drinks.

Lemon Thyme (Thymus citriodorus)
A lovely groundcover Thyme with a lemony taste. Add it to creamy dishes, fish, chicken, teas, and frosty beverages. The lovely pink flowers are a bee favorite! Hardy to USDA zone 7!

Chives (Allium schoenoprasum)
Gorgeous rosy-hued blooms make this one of the most ornamental Alliums you can grow! Chop up the leaves to use fresh on baked potatoes, eggs, homemade ranch dressing, etc. Hardy to USDA zone 3!
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus)
Indispensable in Thai and Vietnamese cooking! Growing it at home is the only sure-fire way to get the most tender, flavorful stalks for making soups and teas. Makes a showy container plant that can be over-wintered indoors.
Oregano 'Hot & Spicy'
The name says it all! This fiery Oregano is great for kicking up the heat on salsas, tomato sauces, or even salads. Hardy to USDA zone 5 and evergreen in zones 8 and up!
Oregano 'Italian'
A traditional, sweet variety perfect for sprikling over grilled pizza or pepping up a pot of beans. It's lovely low-growing plant for the edge of a bed and, like all Oreganos, is aces at bringing the bees!
Lavender Mint (Mentha piperita)
A surprisingly savory Mint! Perfect for adding bright notes to stews or roasts. It's also great for whipping into a quick chimichurri to serve over grilled steak or as a salsa-substitute. Add it to a pot of tea, muddle it into a mojito, or blend it into lemonade. You can never have enough Mint!
Rosemary 'Foxtail'
Drought tolerant, deer resistant, low-maintenance, and long-blooming. "Edible" is just one of Rosemary's myriad virtues. Cut off stems as needed to toss over roast veggies or knead the leaves into a rustic loaf of bread. This semi-prostrate variety has long, upward-curving branches.
