Let's Hear it for the Herbs...
It's all a buzz here at Vesey's as spring has arrived! Whether you are planning on growing either flowers or veggies, there is nothing better then to compliment either of these types of gardens with herbs. Growing herbs can be beneficial in so many ways for both gardens and most importantly the benefits they have for YOU!
Many gardeners enjoy growing herbs outdoors during the warmer temperatures as they do quite well. While it may still be cool in your region you can get a jump start at growing these herbs as transplants indoors and you can even choose to keep them inside year round. The beauty of growing herbs is that they are very versatile as to where you plant and grow them. Growing and cultivating fresh healthy herbs indoors can be done right in your very own kitchen or on any window sill.
There are endless choices when it comes to making a selection of which herbs you would like to grow. If you choose to grow herbs that require a shorter growing season then we've gotcha covered! Whether its taking a stroll through your garden on a summer's morning, or wanting to add a new flavor to your food, the fresh scent will inspire you and you will be glad that you added herbs to your garden. Veseys strives to offer as large a variety of organic and regular seed choices as we can. This selection is streamlined for all types of gardening to pertain to culinary, medicinal and ornamental, reliable herb varieties.
A few years ago, I grew my tomato plants in the revolutionary planter . This container allowed me to grow the tomato plant upside down as seen in the picture to the left. Instead of setting the water reservoir out of the top of it, I added extra potting soil. You can probably guess what type of seed I planted to grow out of the top??? Nothing goes better with tomatoes then...Basil. When the tomatoes were ready for harvest so was the basil. So fresh and so delicious and really took little time and space to accommodate for each of these plants.
Also available for gardeners now-a-days are starter plants/transplants. These plants have been started early to make it easier for gardeners when it comes time to plant. No worries if you are challenged with trying to find space to grow plants indoors, got a later start growing or would just simply prefer to plant directly outdoors. Veseys offers varieties of herbs as Starter Plants (some of which are not available as seed) to help you get a jump-start on the growing season. You will note that these plants are available in season only.
