A plethora of Culinary Herbs!
have more varieties of herb plants available to purchase
than you’ve ever seen in one location! These
not only include many of your favourites, but also
include a great selection of herbs often difficult
to find in northern Alberta.
We sell herb bedding plants, fresh-cut
herbs, and herb mixes. NEW for 2006 – we will
also be selling herb seeds!
We have herbs in beautiful hand-made
pots, and wonderful herb collections in hanging baskets
and in patio/windowsill planters. Select one for yourself
or give someone a beautiful living gift.
Take one of our creations, or you
can you can choose your favourite plants and a container,
and we’ll put one together for you – while
you wait, or made-to-order – and you pay only
for the materials!
Put herbs in your garden, or in a
container placed on your deck or on a windowsill,
ready to clip for dinner. Integrate herbs with your
flowers or vegetables – they make wonderful
companion plants, adding great fragrance and beauty,
and often acting to deter pests. As many herbs originate
from the area of the Mediterranean they often require
less water, and far less ‘care’ than other
plants (there are a few exceptions). They all love
sunshine although a few can handle some shade.
Hang a herbal hanging basket with
a collection of your favourite herbs, near your kitchen
or by the Barbecue. Take the hanger off & bring
it inside for winter. We’ll help you with how
to care for it – inside and outside.
KEY TIPS FOR USING
FRESH HERBS IN YOUR COOKING:
- Use approximately 3 tbsp. fresh
herbs for every ½ tsp. you would use of dried
- Use in last 5-10 minutes of cooking
only – the heat destroys the oils over time.
- Tear fresh herbs, don’t
chop, you want to release the aroma!
- Don’t be afraid to combine
different fresh herbs, use liberally.
- Use fresh-cut herbs anywhere you
would use dried.
- Experiment! Try It Out. The Flavour
is Worth It!
