Using Herbs

There are numerous reasons to grow herbs but the most popular are to USE them. Rosemary, thyme and salvias(sage) are pretty and can add spice to any ornamental garden, but they are really yummy too.


As this website expands we will go more deeply into many of the different ways to cook with herbs. Our Facebook page is updated all of the time too.


Did you ever consider a butterfly/hummingbird or sensory garden? That's the second most popular use of herbs. The bright flowers of the salvia collection, vines that attract hummingbirds and even the wonderful milkweeds that support Monarch butterflies are all ways to bring your garden back to life.
