Fresh, homegrown herbs can easily transform a good meal into a great one. This assortment includes six culinary favorites, with a mix of French, Italian and Mediterranean flavors. Most herbs flourish with consistent harvesting, so clip and enjoy them often and dry any extra growth for later use. Garlic Chive: A hardy perennial that grows in grass-like clumps, with flat, blue-green blades and clusters of bee-attracting white flowers-all edible. The plant's delicate flavor is ideal for salads and dishes that regular garlic would overwhelm. English Thyme: a compact perennial evergreen shrub that produces small, gray-green, leaves for harvesting year-round. A key component of fines herbes in French cuisine, the plant blooms with white to pale purple flowers. Tuscan Blue Rosemary: Cooks favor this fast-growing upright form of perennial rosemary over the trailing variety because of its more flavorful needle-like leaves, which cover the plant all year long. Sweet Basil: An Italian staple for sauces and the key ingredient of pesto. Very easy to grow, the annual yields a plentiful harvest of extra-large aromatic dark-green leaves. Common Sage: Evergreen perennial with gray-green leaves that release a unique, intense flavor and aroma. Greek Oregano: Offering a more robust scent and flavor than Italian oregano, this bright-green variety is ideal for growing in pots, where it can trail over the edge. Blooms with white flowers in late summer, attracting honeybees. Sustainably grown. Appropriate for all growing zones. Suitable for container or ground planting. Require full sun. Plants ship in 4" diam. nursery pots.
