Our James Farmer's Favorites Herb Collection is a celebration of herb
gardening and Southern hospitality. Garden to table guru and good
friend, James Farmer, has collaborated with us and picked some of his favorite fresh culinary herbs to compliment his book, A Time To Plant: Southern-Style Garden Living
, which is chocked full of recipes, design ideas and more!
We’ve included six lush herb plants, grown by hand on our farm and ready to enjoy in your garden and in your favorite drink or dish! We've included Lavender ‘Hidcote'
for its beauty in arrangements or as a garnish, and for its wonderful
fragrance and light, floral flavor in drinks and recipes. For a true
Southern experience, we added ‘Kentucky Colonel’ Mint
, a robust spearmint that grows effortlessly and is the key component to a real Southern tradition, the Mint Julep. ‘Lemon Sweet Dani’ Basil
was chosen for its delicate citrus tones and lovely blooming spires,
making it perfect for flavoring seafood, salads and garnishing summer
desserts. To share a savory note, we also added our Rosemary ‘Arp’
a flavorful, cold hardy, Rosemary that seasons meats, stews and full
flavored desserts. (James loves using the Rosemary twigs as skewers for
adding fruit kebabs to his delectable drinks!) Rounding out his
favorites, are ‘Italian Flat Leaf’ Parsley
for its full body flavor and lovely leafy foliage, and ‘English’ Thyme
a classic culinary herb that grew in his grandmother’s kitchen garden
and of which he has fond, flavorful memories.
