In this post I share some herbs that are perennial and PERFECT for almost any home garden. Enjoy the images and my personal growing advice today.
It’s Spring .. kind of sort of! It’s hard to identify with what is normal after the crazy winters we’ve had over the past few years. Spring seems to just take its time arriving until one day summer is here. I woke up to anther sunset in the 30*’s in my Ohio garden but by noon the temperatures are wonderful spring 50-60*F.

The Anderson’s Market and Garden Center Visit
I love shopping for the local garden centers and today is extra fun because this garden center is attached to an amazing market! If you ever get up to Maumee Ohio you need to stop at The Anderson’s General Store – their tomatoes are amazing year-round! I love the vine-ripe tomatoes they sell on the front end-cap as you enter the market area. Of course I picked a bundle up today during my visit and amused at the package I saw sitting close to the variety I purchased.
The Garden Center
Things are starting to fill up compared to my last visit a few weeks ago. There were a few shoppers checking things out in the trees and shrubs located in the back of the garden center. I of course went right for the herbs and veggies. Lucky for me, they had some great varieties of herbs on sale: $1.99 for a 3″ container of some great varieties.
The perennials looked amazing and a great selection featuring many Monrovia plants. I brought home that succulent for my front rock garden. It is the time to plant most perennials. You will have great results from those that have been growing outdoors like these in the photo below.
It was exciting to find some new varieties today at the garden center. It will be fun to add these to my container garden and share what menu ideas I have in store for them.
Here are the herbs I was excited to see and looking forward to planting them in containers in my garden today.
