HERBS

BASIL ocimum basilicim Wonderfully aromatic foliage on a bushy plant. Leaves are used in cooking and teas (digestive aid). Some basils are grown for their ornamental value. Prefers full sun and rich, well-drained soil. Annuals
'Amethyst' The darkest purple basil available with ample, flavorful leaves. Nice thick turned down leaves like the classic sweet genovese. 60 days .
 
'Boxwood' This compact, small-leafed herb looks like a typical boxwood, and makes a highly ornamental and fragrant edging for the patio or a container by the patio door. Perfect for your fresh or cooked culinary dishes. H 12 to 16".
 
'Spicy Globe' Very compact (6" high, 12" around) and mound forming, ideal for containers. Intense, spicy flavor packed in tiny spicy leaves.
 
'Sweet' Perhaps the most popular and widely used culinary herb. It is a tender annual, aromatic plant with a spicy odor and flavor. We grow a couple of different 'sweet' varieties dependent upon the time of the season and the weather conditions. They are compact, 12-14", will thrive well in containers and the garden.
 
'Sweet Mammoth' 'Sweet Mammoth' has a much stronger, fuller flavor than 'Genovese' sweet basil. Huge leaves, growing as big as your hands, are perfect for sauces, pesto and even fresh on a sandwich. Great for pots and growing indoors, plants have a shorter habit. H 15-20"
 
'Thai Cardinal' Thai basil with larger leaves. Flat, 2-3" long leaves that are larger than typical Thai types; purple stems and dark, purple-red flower bracts. Cinnamon/clove flavor with hints of anise. Slower growing and slow to bolt. Has demonstrated very good downy mildew tolerance. 80 days

BORAGE officinalis 'Herb of Gladness' This herb is usually associated with good spirits and well being. An airy plant with thick soft hollow stems to 3' and decorated in an abundance of star-shaped wedgewood blue flowers with black anthers. The bristly leaves when chopped have a refreshing cucumber-like flavor and aroma. The flower is a nice addition to summer salads or they float perfectly on the surface of summer drinks.
