Potted Herb Plants: The Easy Gift that Keeps on Giving

| 11/11/2011 11:30:13 AM

B.WhiteBriscoe White is owner at The Growers Exchange, an all-natural online garden center that specializes in rare and traditional herbs for culinary, aromatic and medicinal use. When not tending his greenhouse or writing for his blog, Briscoe’s Seeds For Thought, he spends what little free time he has planning his next garden and playing with his dogs on his family farm in Charles City, Virginia. 

The holidays can sometimes be a challenging time to find the perfect gift for the plant lover in your life, so give them the gift that keeps giving this season, and send a unique potted herb kit. While this time of year conjures images of poinsettias that fade and collect dust long before the holiday festivities are done, a customized herb kit is a meaningful gift that will provide fresh herbs and provide naturally lush décor for many months afterward. These one-of-a-kind kits are available in a variety of aromatic and culinary herbs and come with a stylish planter, soil and detailed instructions. Easy to care for and even easier to enjoy, these long-living herbs will give you a continuous supply of fresh flavors for cooking and lift your spirits until spring arrives.

Why Potted Herbs? 

Fresh herbs enhance our favorite holiday dishes and their aromas fill our homes with warmth, but they can become scarce to find as the weather grows colder. Sometimes found at large grocery chains, buying small bundles of herbs in the off season can really add up, especially during a season where pennies are already being pinched tightly. Growing your own potted herbs affords you the luxury of fresh plants whenever you need, with no added cost.
