Growing your own herbs and vegetables is an empowering and rewarding hobby. Growing something in your own backyard is a healthy way to learn what goes into our food. The effort that is put into making the plants grow and produce our own food teaches people young and old that investing time and energy is the best way to make things grow.
Our herbs and vegetables commonly come in 4” and 6” containers making it easy to fit them into a small bed or container. During the vegetable growing season, we will often carry many unique varieties of vegetables including tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and even lettuce! Not only will you find classics like better boy tomatoes and bell peppers, but we often get in more uncommon heirloom varieties.
We carry many different varieties of more common herbs as well as some unique variations on old classics. Peppermint and spearmint are staples in any herb garden, but have you ever tried chocolate or pineapple mint? We often try and stock many less-than-common herbs as well like nasturtiums and lemongrass. Be sure to check back often to see what we have in stock!
Herbs and vegetables require regular care and watering. Many want a thorough soaking before drying out again. We recommend planting these assorted herbs and vegetables in a well-draining potting mix that has lots of organic matter. When planting in the ground or a raised bed, it is important to enrich the existing soil with compost or other organic matter. We recommend fertilizing quarterly with an organic fertilizer to keep your plants looking their best.
