The Portable, Potted Holiday Herb Garden 


Add savour and richness to fall & winter meals! Pick fresh herbs from a portable, potted herb garden just outside your door from September untill December.

Plant a 12” container with the classic herbs of fall and winter feasts: sage, rosemary, thyme, parsley and winter savory. Placed in a sunny spot and kept well-watered and fed, these hardy herbs will produce flavor-packed leaves well into the coldest months. As nights become cold, move your garden indoors for the evening. When winter weather arrives, bring your potted herb garden indoors. It will winter well in a cool indoor spot until spring arrives and can return to outdoor living

Please bring an apron and flower scissors to class if you have them.
