Live Herbs and Winter Garden Plant Starts are this week’s fresh picks of the week from the Certified Farmers’ Market. Just in time for Winter gardens here in Southern California, these locally grown Herbs and Plant Starts are already acclimatized and ready to be transplanted into containers or your Winter Garden.
Because these Herbs and Plant Starts are grown locally, and not in a hothouse, they are heartier, and more likely to grow into stronger plants than starts that have been hothouse-grown and imported into the area from other climates.
Did you know: The term “herb” can be applied to any plant that is valued for its flavor, scent, medicinal or other quality (besides food value.
Herbs are typically used in cooking, as medicines, and for spiritual purposes, and can be annuals, perennials, shrubs, or even trees.
Price: $ 1.50 each, and up, depending on the variety.
