Soil: Loamy
Flowers: Late Summer to Middle Summer

We first saw this delicate, cool summer beauty in Seattle labeled ""Root Beer Plant. This caught our attention, as we have the same common name on a different plant. While not as strongly scented as our Root Beer Plant (Piper auritum), it's fragrance lingers all summer from apricot-pink flowers hovering above finely cut gray foliage.

Height: 3x 2 1/2 Feet
Water: Normal
Soil: Organic-Loamy

Claude Monet might have wept upon seeing its pastel presentation of white, lime, and dark green leaves. Almost as vigorous growth as ""African Blue"" with slighty milder flavor.

""Thanks for the Memories""For those of you who don't read the cultural requirements below, this one gets 3-4 feet tall! Susan describes it as ""One of the most complex basil aromas and the strongest. The first sniff is loaded with cinnamon & has the background of allspice and cloves. Pumpkin Pie spice comes to mind."" And may we add it's just as good in a Cincinnati style spagetti sauce. Identical to Richters' ""Lesbos Basil"". $ 3.99

Light: Full Sun to Full Sun
Height: 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 Feet
Water: Normal
Soil: Organic-Loamy
Common Uses:Butterfly, Culinary, Ornamental


It’s a perfect 1-1/2 foot globe of spicy basil flavor laced with a touch of mint. Mark admits to being disappointed initially with this variety, as it does not like a cool greenhouse, but man did it take off during the summer. We sheared it once in August and by October it still had not flowered. This was definitely the most frost tolerant of any basil we grew last year. $ 3.99

Light: P.Sun-P.Shade to Shade
Height: 2 1/2 feet
Water: Normal
Soil: Organic-Loamy
Common Uses:Culinary, , Ornamental
Can you imagine this on your next salad? - fresh leaves with the smell & taste of bell peppers and basil! Definitely the sturdiest as well as the most polished of basils. To have the best flavor, grow in filtered sunlight to afternoon shade, to keep leaves tender and delicious. Emerald green shiny leaves form the perfect background for reddish pink flowers that never stop. Quite cold hardy too! For years, Madelene Hill has been promoting this rare beauty. We now join her in proclaiming this a “Must-Have” herb. See Pepper Basil featured in HerbCompanion’s Feb/March 2004 issue. $ 3.99

Water: Normal
Soil: Organic-Loamy
Flowers: Late Summer
Common Uses:Culinary, Ornamental
New in 2006
Wavy, wine colored foliage much like 'Ebony Wonder' meets the tall columnar growth of 'Aussie Sweetie'. This will be Mark's 2006 topiary project, which, if half as pretty as 'Ausie Sweetie' topiaries, will surely grace many church weddings and elegant reception halls! $ 3.99

Ocimum basilicum 'Envigor'

Light: Full Sun
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Culinary
I do know this is an exceptionally healthy genovese-type basil resistant to three of the most debilitating viral diseases, but, there is no reference to height in the literature, so we'll all find that out this year. We also know we can expect the same luscious, large, intensely flavored leaves. $ 0.00

Common Uses:Borders, Culinary, Edible Flowers, Hedges/Shrubs, Topiary

Height: 3-4 Feet
Water: Normal,,Wet
Soil: Organic-Loamy
Flowers: Late Spring
Common Uses:Borders, , Butterfly, , Culinary, , Ornamental


You could stop at the dwarf (12 to 15 inch height) and be satisfied but this new lavender/pink 'Monarda' boasts mildew resistance as well. Shiny, deep green foliage offsets lavender pink summer explosions. I like to site these in morning sun but they could tolerate full sun in most areas of the U.S. $ 3.99

The ideal perennial! Low maintenance,(i.e. no dead heading) with a perfect mound of delicate, sweet tasting, lilac-blue flowers that spoil us from June until after a fall freeze. It's true!

Light: Full Sun
Height: 1 Foot
Water: Normal
Soil: Any Soil
Common Uses:Butterfly, , Culinary


Chose this “Oniony Chive” because of its heavier, thicker leaves which makes harvest, fresh use and freezing easier. Freeze by snipping leaves into 2 or 3” lengths, placing it on a cookie sheet and “flash freezing” it for about 30 minutes or until stiff. Throw them in labelled “Zip-loc” bags. This insures being able to pull out the leaves individual. $ 3.99

Light: P.Shade-P.Sun
Height: Groundcover
Water: Wet
Soil: Organic
Common Uses:Baskets, , Culinary
(RauRam) In only a short while, this cilantro impersonator is becoming a favorite. It looks like a weed, related to “Smart-weed,” (then again, aren’t they all?) and grows like one in the right situation, but will not flower. We have it year round because it’s dug up in the fall and planted in hanging baskets to overwinter. Use like “Cilantro” in Southwest, Asian & Mexican cuisines. $ 3.99

Survivor Series: A favorite cooking variety of the local Puerto Rican community; Leaves look just like our ""Vick's Plant,"" except they are more gray and stems are very compact, forming a mound (as opposed to long and trailing), however the flavor is more minty-oregano & the scent, less ""Vapor Rub. $ 3.99

Cold Tolerance: Zone 9a 9b-11
Light: Shade
Height: Spreading to 4'
Water: Dry-Normal
Soil: Organic-Loamy
Common Uses:Baskets, Culinary, Houseplants, Ornamental


How about a “Survivor” for the shade? In fact, that’s where it’ll produce the best color. Much like the “Variegated,” but, with a warmer gold and green variegation and scalloped edged, thick leaves that “wave like a football stadium cheer.” (Mark,-the king of bad metaphors) More ornamental, than flavorful, which must’ve been lost during the selection process. $ 3.99

Cuban Oregano, Variegated

Light: Sun-P.Shade to P. Shade
Height: 5 feet Trailing
Water: Normal
Soil: Organic-Loamy
Common Uses:Baskets, Culinary, Groundcover, Houseplants, Ornamental
One of the best basket plants we've ever grown: it is hard to kill and tasty too! We admit it. We'd forget to water our own baskets on the porch for a week, but it was no problem. Use fresh in Mexican cooking as you would oregano. Break apart a large fleshy leaf and add to a chicken salad along with pineapple sage. The green and white variegation is a joy to use in the landscape, mixed container, moss basket or as groundcover. Makes great sunny window houseplant. $ 3.99

Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Culinary


A retail customer of ours from Nicaragua, shrieked for joy when she spotted her favorite home country herb. Very rare. We selected this from ""Companion Plants"", due to its Cilantro flavor claim but we never imagined it could wound us. 3"" long green leaves form a rosette from which comes an almost non-stop source of miniature green thistles creating a beautiful rounded mound. Although it looks fiercesome, the leaves cook down easily and can be used year round. Flowers stalks are used the same until they become too mature. It is best grown in with afternoon shade and lots of water. Except in the ""Pacific Northwet"" where it can be grown in ""full sun"". $ 4.99

Cold Tolerance: Zone 9a 9b-11
Light: Full Sun to Sun-P.Sun
Height: 2-3 Feet
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Culinary, Medicinal




Insist on this Mexican herb with any bean dish to “for-go the fireworks.” Use 1/4 cup chopped fresh leaves per kettle of stews, soups, & bean dishes during the last 10 to 15 minutes of cooking. Don’t worry about the unusual odor. I believe it quickly dissipates and imparts little flavor, if any, although others say they even like the taste. Absolutely necessary for black bean soup or chili. $ 3.99

Flowers: Late Summer to Middle Summer
Common Uses:Butterfly, Culinary, Edible Flowers, Medicinal, Ornamental, Tea


This beauty need not provide anything useful, but boy does it ever! Imagine fine feathery foliage with a bronze-red cast, tickling yellow hued ""Queen Anne Lace""-like flowers above. Does not produce a bulb but leaves and stems are tasty, finely chopped, added to salads, fish, and soups. A tea from the leaves or seeds eases our indigestion. After seeds begin to mature, cut entire stalks. Hang them upside down in a paper bag to finish ripen, and avoid self-seeding all over the garden. $ 3.99

GROWN IN A 4 PACK TRAY
For those of you who forgot to plant your cloves last fall, we offer a ""cold treated"" hard-neck garlic. It produces about 6-8 cloves per bulb that are easy to separate and peel, with a touch of heat and real garlicky flavor. You'll receive a 4 pack of sprouted large cloves which should be put in the ground immediately, about 8"" apart. In the spring, we remove our flower heads (scapes) that curl above like a pig's tail. Saute them in butter and stink up the kitchen to garlic high heaven. Harvest in July when bottom 3 leaves have dried up. Save the largest cloves for planting next fall, as they will yield the biggest bulbs. Southern growers need to cold treat their bulbs next winter. $ 3.99
