Herbs are a great introduction to gardening for young kids because they are such durable and tactile plants and as a bonus, they are stimulating to the senses. Herbs appeal to the sense of taste with their edible leaves and flowers, the sense of touch with the varied textures of their foliage, and the sense of smell with their wide variety of potent fragrances, from the citrus sweetness of Lemon Verbena, to the cool freshness of Mint. Most herbs are drought tolerant, thrive in poor soil, and don’t require fertilizers or chemicals to keep the pests away.

Due to the nature of shipping live plants, when you place an order, we will simply hold your order and ship it at the proper time for your zone, when weather permits in April 2013. Seed packets are shipped year round through USPS.
