It’s simple to do and within a few weeks, you can have fresh vegetables and herbs in your own backyard.

Homegrown Vegetable Plants
We grow over 90% of the vegetable plants we sell, and all of the vegetable plants we grow in our growing houses are Non-GMO. Our grower starts by selecting varieties with a proven track record and continually adds the latest varieties to our selection. Before they reach your garden, the plants are nurtured by our team, with over 50 years of experience, ensuring they have a healthy root system and are at the right stage of growth.
We also have a selection of Organic Vegetable Plants available from the first week in May until mid-June supplied by our partner Wyllie Fox Farms.
Our herb selection is continually replenished throughout the spring. Varieties include Basil, Parsley, Mints, Sages, Rosemary, Thymes, Lemongrass, Cilantro, Oreganos, Tarragons, Dill, and Lavender. We also have an exciting range of Footprint Edibles; these are naturally grown herbs from our Veriflora certified growing partner.
Footprint Edibles are available beginning in May with many choices including traditional varieties as well as fun inspirational varieties such as Pineapple Sage, Lemon Verbena, Chocolate Mint, Mojito Mint, Orange Mint, Roman Chamomile, Lemon Balm, Hot and Spicy Oregano, and Sweet Genovese Basil.
The Benefits of growing your own Vegetables and Herbs
- Eating fresh vegetables has many health benefits.
- Family activity – involve the kids

Our selection of vegetable and herbs changes throughout the spring season as different varieties become ready with our best selection available from the end of April thru early June.
Please note that due to seasonal changes and our growing program we may not have all of the above-listed varieties available throughout the season. It is always best to call ahead if you are looking for a specific variety.
