It proved to be an exciting connection! After viewing their catalog, I found many new and exciting herbs to choose from......some I'd never seen seeds for and some I'd never heard of before!!! But, I'm getting ahead of myself. Let me tell you a little about the company.

Their place sounds idyllic with many features to see. Along with their many gardens, they also have a secret reflecting pond hidden in their forest of tall firs and old growth maples, they have a conservatory filled with an aromatic collection of exotic plants, they have a country restaurant which is surrounded by herb gardens, and the 2 streams that run through their farm where you can watch the salmon run. I hope to plan a trip out there one day.
Their catalog is chocked full of many, many varieties of herbs as well as some peppers, everlasting flowers , hops, and mushroom plugs. They also carry some dried medicinal and culinary herbs , some herb and spice blends, and herbal teas. They are stictly to-the-point when it comes to the catalog. There are not a lot of showy pictures, but I find lots of information about the plants, how to grow them, and what to use them for and also some history and lore about the plant.
