Summary

Grow a kitchen garden for clipping fresh, flavorful herbs whenever you need them. This culinary herb collection includes seven seed varieties that are favorites for use in cooking. The organic seeds are vigorous, open-pollinated varieties that are highly productive, flavorful and nutritious. The collection was developed for us by Northern California’s The Living Seed Company, which donates seeds to school garden programs, youth groups and other suitable charities.

  • Includes 7 individual packets of seeds (see More Info tab for specifics on each variety).
  • Organic seeds are pesticide- and herbicide-free and non-genetically modified.
  • Seeds are packed in resealable plastic envelopes with a clay desiccant; most varieties will store 4–10 years if kept cool and dry.
  • Open-pollinated varieties allow you save the seeds from each year’s harvest to plant the next year.

Collection includes one seed packet of each of:

  • Genovese Basil
  • Santo Cilantro
  • Mammoth Dill
  • English Thyme
  • Italian Oregano
  • Italian Parsley
