Herb Plants for sale at HerbFest In Addition To Being Non GMO, Locally N.C. Certified Organically Raised From Organic Root/Seed Stock.
Herbs are grown organically and in most situations we always try to use organic seeds for our herbs. Also organic heirloom vegetables grown organically from organic seeds.
Below are examples of some of the herbs we have offered at previous herbfests. This is by no means all inclusive as many broad groups such as "rosemary" may actually be comprised of 10 different varieties but this list is just to give you an idea of what to expect. Also we try to add in as many unusual rare herbs as we can find each day of the herbfest although those herbs are usually limited to no more than 90 plants each day.
We can not gurantee which plants we will have when other than we always stock large amounts of basil ( over 5,000 plants with most being Italian, Genovese ) and rosemaries. Our growers are always dependent on the sun and the heat. If there is plenty of sunshine prior to April 15 then lots of basils etc. If not, during the 2 each 3 day weekends of the HerbFest, new plants are taking off if plenty of sun so we restock and bring on new varities as they emerge or wait for the younger plants to mature during the festival. It is not unusual for some of our herbs to double in size in less than 24 hours on the herb tables.
90% our herbs are "hardened off" before arriving. That simply means the greenhouse sides are opened for minimum 24 hours, sometimes for several days, so the herbs and vegetables can acclimate to the outside climate and insure their survival once planted.
