Edibles and Culinary Herbs

redveined sorrel

There is little more satisfying that growing your own fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs. The true prize after the work of weeding, cultivating, and planting is the leisurley tour through the garden, surveying what is ripe and ready for supper. The ultimate in freshness, fruit, veggies and greens that go straight from the garden to the table are beyond compare for flavor and healthfulness.

At The Garden Company, we are always on the look out for interesting perennial edibles that provide a creative opportunity in your landscaping as well as for your table. The list below contains edibles that will grace your garden for many years to come, as well as some of the standard seasonal edibles we grow. If you prefer to seach by botanical name, use the alphabetical links at the bottom of the page. Contact us if you'd like information about our organic annual veggie starts.
