Gardening with Herbs

Herbs such as Dill, Cilantro, Basil, Celery, Rosemary, Mint, Thyme, Lavender, and many others are available here in our garden centre at Seaway Farms.  Whether you are planning to grow a herb garden in containers and place on your kitchen counter or add an arrangement in larger pots for a patio, keep your favourite herbs close to the kitchen for fresh, fragrant accents to your home-cooked meals.  Some herbs are even great to plant right in your garden and will come up every year.



Rosemary, is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant, evergreen, needle-like leaves and white, pink, purple, or blue flowers.  Rosemary can be used either dried or fresh, as a tasty addition to poultry & fish recipes, bread, and soups.  It prefers Sun, Good Drainage and Good Air Circulation. Provide a sandy, well-drained soil and 6-8 hours of full sunlight.  Available in  4″ , 6″ , 9″ pots and 14″ decorative pots.



Cilantro is also known by the name Coriander or Chinese Parsley and is an annual herb.  All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and dried seeds (coriander) are most commonly used in cooking and fresh dishes.  The leaves have a citrus-like flavour and great with many Asian and Mexican dishes. It grows 50 cm (20 in.) tall, with green leaves and has white / very pale pink flowers. 



Basil is an edible herb that belongs to the mint family.  There are many types of basil, but the common one is the sweet basil often used in Italian dishes.  These are annual plants and seedlings should be planted in clean soil 10-12 in. apart. Water freely and make sure to pinch off the flowers.  Tomatoes make great garden partners to Basil.  Harvest leaves after 6 leaves are showing, prune to above the second set. Prune before flowers bloom. Basil can be used fresh, dried or frozen.
