Herbs & Flowers
Sweet-smelling sweet peas and three unique beautiful basils plus the workhorse, parsley. Plant out basil when it's consistently warm at night.
Dwarf Sweet Pea Pots
Fragrant dwarf sweet peas!
Colors include rose pink and white, shell pink, lavender and deep purple.
Vines grow only 8 – 12” long, and will cascade over the edge of the container.
Sweet peas are heavy feeders, so fertilize throughout the growing season. Deadheading encourages a longer season of bloom.
Keep soil evenly moist and protect from hot direct sun.
Emily Genovese Basil
Emily is a compact bushy Genovese-type variety great in containers. Grows only to 12 inches. Intensely flavored medium-sized dark green leaves are perfect for making pesto and flavoring tomato dishes. Keeps well after harvesting. Basil may have originated in India and has been cultivated throughout the world for over 5,000 years. This variety is petite, but potent!
Lettuce Leaf Basil
An Italian heirloom considered the most productive of all the sweet basils, on 18 – 24 inch, vigorous, bushy plants. Very large, crinkled and highly aromatic leaves that look like lettuce are more sweet than spicy, and not quite as sharp as other basils. The large leaves take some of the work out of making pesto or basil oil, and are excellent wrappers for grilled vegetables, fish, and appetizers.
Siam Queen Thai Basil
Siam Queen adds tremendous punch to any Asian-inspired dish, with its spicy anise-clove scent and flavor. The large and lovely violet-pink flowers are edible, too. Plants are 12-18" tall and happy in containers. A member of the mint family, basils have been cultivated for thousands of years. It was introduced in ancient times to Asia through the spice routes.
Italian Flat Leaf Parsley
The world’s most popular herb – happy in containers, and attractive planted throughout your garden. Flat leaf parsley was specifically developed for use as a fresh seasoning. The early Greeks made crowns of parsley to bestow upon the winners of sports games, and the Romans used parsley to cure that “morning after the banquet” feeling. Its uses are virtually endless!
