Plants

Our Grow Your Own category is very dynamic and plants are added frequently depending on the availability of medicinal herbs, cuttings, roots and other perennial plants from our herb farm. Most plants are sold and shipped during their winter dormancy, which sets up our customers for the best success. We generally start selling them in July and finish at the end of August.

Please check back again or subscribe for individual plants and be the first to get notified once they are available again.

Plants are grown spray free, free from chemicals, herbicides, pesticides and fungicides. We are a biological farm enhancing soil life and working with natural cycles.
