HERBS

If variety is the spice of life, we’ve got you covered in two ways. First, our huge selection of herb plants for sale includes all of your standard favorites, as well as exotic and rare varieties. As for spice, no kitchen is complete without the freshest seasonings. Nothing enhances flavors like fresh herbs.

If you grow your own herbs, you’ll have a fresh supply always ready to be snipped, available all year if you grow them in your pots indoors too. Herb plants are considerably less expensive than packaged fresh herbs or even dried herbs found in the supermarket, not to mention that they have more intense flavor and higher nutritional value.

CHIVES

Chives grace the garden with bright green stems and pinkish-purple pom-pom blooms — all of which offer a distinctly mild onion flavor. Versatile and easy-growing, chives thrive in containers and also form an eye-catching edging in planting beds. After chives flower, cut plants and trim portions of the clump at a time.
Varieties: Onion
Container size: 4″ Pot

CILANTRO

With bright green, fern-textured stems, cilantro holds its own in beds or pots, forming a clump of sturdy, flavorful stems. Every part of cilantro promises a taste treat: spicy leaves, pungent seeds (known as coriander), and tangy roots. Many grow cilantro for the foliage, which boasts a citrusy bite that enlivens Mexican and Thai cooking.
Varieties: Coriander
Container size: 4″ pot

DILL

For versatility in the garden, it’s hard to beat beautiful, easy-grows-it dill. This herb fills a planting area with a fountain of graceful, delicate foliage. Flat flower heads beckon butterflies, bees, and other good bugs. Snip tasty foliage to flavor home-cooked fare, from potatoes, to soups, to egg dishes.
Varieties: Fernleaf
Container size: 4″ pot

LAVENDER

Lavender fills the early-summer garden with sensory delights: beautiful purple-tone blooms atop foliage that oozes fragrance on a sunny afternoon. Every part of the plant is infused with aromatic oil, making this a choice herb to place along pathways or near outdoor seating areas so you can savor the fragrance.
Varieties: Hidcote
Container size: 4″ pot

LEMON BALM

Lemon balm’s quilted green leaves release a delicious lemony aroma when brushed, making it the perfect fragrant addition to plantings near patios and garden benches. Low-maintenance lemon balm thrives in beds or containers, as long as roots sink into well-drained soil.
Varieties: Plain
Container size: 4″ pot

OREGANO

Savor true Italian flavor with garden-fresh oregano. This sprawling herb pumps up the taste in tomato sauces, pizza, and Mediterranean cuisine. An easy-growing perennial, oregano thrives in planting beds or containers. Plant it in a pot with rosemary, sage, and thyme.
Varieties: Plain
Container size: 4″ pot

ROSEMARY

Known as a symbol of remembrance and friendship, rosemary fills a garden with aroma, flavor, and activity — busily pollinating bees love the blooms. This herb comes in various forms, from stiff and upright, ideal for a hedge planting, to mounded and spreading, perfect for scrambling along a slope or wall.
Varieties: Barbecus, Hill Hardy, Prostrates, Tuscon, Upright
Container size: 4″ pot

SAGE

You just can’t overdo sage in the garden. This perennial herb earns its keep with fast-growing ways, beautiful blooms, and a flavor deer find distasteful. Once established, plants shrug off drought, although it’s wise to keep plants well-hydrated through the hottest parts of summer if you want a steady supply of supple foliage.
Varieties: Common
Container size: 4″ pot

THYME

Introduce scenery from the Greek Isles to your garden with lush plantings of thyme. This sun-loving, drought-tolerant herb carpets hillsides in Greece, thriving in well-drained soil. Drought conditions concentrate the aromatic oils in thyme, so the drier your growing conditions, the better.
Varieties: Common
Container size: 4″ pot
