Herbs are plants with aromatic leaves or flowers,

used for Cooking, perfume or medicinal purposes. 

Most herbs are used fresh through the growing season, at any age of the plant.   Fresh herbs are more flavorful than dried, so use just half of what you normally would use than dried.

 

Herbs are easily dried at the end of summer by either hanging upside down in a dry cool space or placed in drying ovens.  Fresh dried herbs can be stored in a sealed container for up to 2 years. 

Dan Schantz Greenhouse and Cut Flower Outlet grow and sells Herbs in various sizes. 

sometimes we even have them in tree form!

 

These are just some of the herbs we grow.  Check back often, call or email to request your favorites.

Otherwise known as Chinese Parsley, it is used in many Asian dishes. Some use it (it's similar to Corriander) in Salsa making. Tip: try keeping it in a cooler growing location to prevent it from early bolting or seed sprouting. However, you can save the bolted seeds for next year sowing.
