An exhibitor’s table of herb goodies in the greenhouse is irresistable to this Annual Herb Fair visitor.


Richters Blends:

• Edible Potpourri
• Fragrant Tea Blend 

“We live and breathe herbs here.”

That’s what they say at Richters Herbs, an internationally known herb nursery and mail-order business in the little town of Goodwood, just outside Toronto, Ontario.

For herb lovers, a visit to Richters is like being a kid in a candy store. Greenhouses are open year-round—even in the snowy Canadian winter—and crammed with a tantalizing selection of plants. Looking for lemongrass? No problem. Want to expand your echinacea collection? Richters has half a dozen kinds to choose from. Revel in the endless rows of scented geraniums or splurge on a baby bo tree (Ficus religiosa), a junior version of the one that sheltered Buddha during his meditations. An adjoining gift shop features books, pots, stationery, and seeds—enough to satisfy the most ardent herb-o-phile.

If you’re lucky, you might be able to attend one of the many free seminars or special events held onsite, such as soap-making or landscaping with herbs.
