What’s Happening in the Greenhouse

It is close to that time of year where buying dried herbs is out, and purchasing herb plants is in! The greenhouse has been busy and is gearing up to bring over our fresh herb plants and Mother’s Day baskets around the first of May. Michaele Williams, our Farm Manager, cannot wait for you to see how the potted herbs came in. There is nothing better than the smell and taste of fresh, locally grown herbs! Herbs are a great way to bring flavor to your dishes and add a little something extra to your meals. One of the biggest advantages of growing your own herbs is the flavor. You can never get the same flavor from dried herbs that you can from fresh herbs. Fresh herbs also have more nutrients and antioxidants than dried herbs, which can boost your health. You can easily grow them at home in the garden or in their pots. All of our herbs are easy to grow and don’t require a lot of maintenance. Taking fresh herbs home to grow on your own is also a great way to save money. You can buy one plant and get more than enough herbs for your needs. Plus, you won’t have to worry about buying more herbs when you run out. Some of the potted herbs that you can expect to see soon in the farm market are basil, cilantro, oregano, parsley, dill, and more!

Our Mother’s Day baskets are always a huge hit, selling out rather quickly with only 75 made for the season. They make the perfect gift, hosting multiple herbs like basil, dill, oregano, thyme, chive, cilantro or tarragon. All herbs are put into a biodegradable bowl that you can either put right into a planter, or if you want them to grow larger, you can separate them and plant them individually.

So instead of buying dried herbs from the store, try growing your own, with Bishop’s Orchards helping you with the roots!

If you’re interested in learning more about our herbs, give us a call at 203-453-2338. Mark your calendars for May 1st and be sure to check out our Mother’s Day baskets and herb plants.
