Rare and Unusual Herb Plants

The Growers Exchange specializes in herb plants - we are the source for the unusual and rare herbs that are hard to find. We are constantly adding new herb plants to our rare collection and look for plants with historical and spiritual significance, as well as usefulness: culinary, medicinal, aromatic, and ornamental.

Please Note: We sell plants, NOT seeds. Our plants are big, healthy, well rooted and ready to plant - our standard pot is 3.5 inches. We do not ship our plants until they are ROOT READY. They will have good top growth unless they are coming in or out of dormancy. We grow all of our plants to the point that they are ready to go into the ground or container.
