Every herb under the sun
Aromatic and appetizing herbs delight all of the senses. Looking for herbs? You’ll find “every herb under the sun” at Rohsler’s Nursery. Keep in mind that while herbs prefer a sunny location, they are very versatile in location. Herbs can be grown inside, in the garden, or in outdoor containers.
Herbs can be both perennials and annuals. Some annual herbs include Basil and Dill. Unlike these annual herbs which have to be replanted every year, some perennial herbs will remain in your garden year after year. French Tarragon, Spearmint, Peppermint, and Thyme are all perennial herbs. Other herbs, including Rosemary, are known as tender perennials. These plants will not usually overwinter in our region.
Rohsler’s carries a large selection of culinary herbs, including numerous varieties of Basil and Thyme. Some of the herbs available at Rohsler’s also include ornamental herbs like Teucrium. Medicinal herbs, like Sweet Cicely and Angelica, can also be found at Rohsler’s. The selection at Rohslers is not just limited to common herbs. Although Bay Laurel is a Mediterranean shrub, it can be found in our herb collection.
We pride ourselves on our wide selection of herbs and our knowledgeable staff who can guide you in your selection of herbs and discuss their culinary and beneficiary attributes. We can give you some great advice on what herbs will add flavor and zest to all of your favorite dishes.
At Rohsler’s our large selection of well-loved herbs includes many options you will want to try, such as:
- Italian Parsley
- Lemon Balm
- Pineapple Sage
- Creeping Thyme
Spice Up your culinary life
This spring, plant an herb garden near your indoor or outdoor kitchen. Constant, convenient access to fresh herbs will encourage you to use these flavorful plants in your favorite savory and sweet dishes. Your culinary experiments may even give rise to new recipes. Have you tried using basil in mango sorbet? Or making our own mint tea with fresh mint leaves?
Herbs don’t have to be grown in a full garden. Herbs can be grown in a dedicated kitchen garden, in association with non-edible annuals and perennials, like lavender, as a border, or in containers. In fact, herbs like mint are perfect to be grown in containers. In our area, mint tends to grow and spread and then spread even more. Containers will help keep your mint right where you want it.
If you plan to start your herb garden from scratch, Rohsler’s can help with our selection of USDA Organic seeds. Check for the USDA Organic logo while searching for seeds for your herbs & veggies. This logo appears on numerous seed packets in our seed selection.
We can also give you a head start with garden-ready plants. Rohsler’s is expanding its selection of USDA certified organically grown herbs and vegetables by bringing in One Earth Edibles.
Boost your gardens appeal with Herbs
As you design your herb garden, keep in mind these plants not only add visual interest to the landscape, but the perfume from their leaves and flowers has been held in high esteem for centuries. The ancient Egyptians and Greeks used herbs and flowers to create cosmetics, and for aromatherapy.
Herbs aren’t just beneficial when they are living. Many herbs are also useful and decorative when they are dried. There is nothing like dried homegrown lavender in a sachet.
Herbs can also be grown inside during the winter months in a nice sunny window or under grow lights. Rohsler’s has what you need and what you will want once you enter the wonderful world of herbs.
Every Sauce Begins with a Seed
Delicious, vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables are always within easy reach when you grow them yourself. This year, devote part of your yard, deck, or patio to your personal favorites and enjoy the best nature has to offer.
After all, every tomato sauce begins with a seed. Start your tomato plants with seeds from Rohsler’s in early spring, or visit us at the nursery in May to purchase healthy, garden-ready plants. In either case, with proper care, your plants should be producing an abundance of tomatoes this summer.
Check your favorite recipes now. If you will need oregano or basil, be sure to grow those herbs, too. That way, you’ll have what you need when it’s time to start simmering.
Take the “Oh No” out of GMO
Growing your own food means taking control of your diet. You’ll be able to avoid GMOs, herbicides, and pesticides while keeping yourself stocked with amazing organic fuel. When you buy seeds in packets marked with the USDA Organic logo, you know exactly what you’re getting.
The organic soil amendments and plant foods available at Rohsler’s will help fortify your plants. If you’re ready to take things a bit further, talk to Rohsler’s experts about the benefits of a compost bin.
Versatile Vegetable Venues
If you don’t have space for a dedicated vegetable garden, try planting a few varieties right in your annual and perennial beds. It works! The edible landscape or foodscaping is becoming more popular every year. Bright Lights Swiss Chard is a great vegetable with both ornamental and edible attributes. Try planting some blueberries in the landscape for some delicious berries and vibrant fall foliage.
Don’t have the space for a garden? You don’t need one! Some vegetable plants will take off in a hanging basket or container garden. At Rohsler’s we have a wide selection of options for those interested in container gardens.
Need a container? Try our Earthboxes. These convenient, self-watering containers (with wheels) are perfect for the patio or deck. We also carry Frame It All modular raised bed kits made of composite timber and Gronomics elevated garden beds made of rot resistant cedar.
Rohsler’s abundant selection of vegetable plants includes heirloom varieties, grafted tomatoes, brand new introductions, and an impressive variety of both hot and sweet peppers.
We also invite you to plant fruit trees, assorted berries, grape vines, and hops. Herbs & veggies aren’t the only options for edible plants in our selection. Ask our knowledgeable staff what you’ll need to maintain your new plants. We want you to succeed!
