You may not think about ordering plants that could provide cuttings
for wreaths or flower arrangements, but using fresh or dried herbs
this way is a lot of fun. In an afternoon, you can create herbal art
that can grace a wedding table or a country picnic table. Need
something beautiful for your bathroom that also smells great? Make a
wreath for the wall or a floral arrangement for the counter.
considering a plant to use for drying, there are a couple of
questions to ask. What color will these leaves and flowers be when
they dry. How long will they hold their color? How easy are they to
work with in both their fresh and dried state? When is it best to
pick their flowers or leaves for the best result?
We created two Herb Garden Six Packs that answer
these questions and give you a place to start.
Our Zone 5 -11 Crafter's Herb Garden
is for those in colder climates but can also be grown by those in warmer
Zone 8-11 Crafter's Herb Garden
was created for those gardeners in warmer areas.
Zones are one of the most misunderstood aspects of gardening. Our page
understanding zones will help
you pick the right plants for your garden.
