customize your pot of herbs

Would you like a lovely planter of herbs on your deck this summer?

Would you like someone else to do the work of planting it?

I’m putting together large patio pots full of a variety of herbs, and you can customize your mix of herbs according to your taste. If you’d like to pick 6 from the list below and email me your request, I’ll pot it up for you and put your name on it right away.

The pots are round, 10″ deep with a diameter of 15″. Fairly big, but still moveable. They’re made from pressed fibre so they have an earthy, natural look. The cost is $20 per pot. They will be available for pickup starting Monday, May 23.

You have 2 options for pickup:

1. At my greenhouse, 136 Ann Street in Kitchener, Mondays and Tuesdays from 11am-9pm.

2. At the St. Jacob’s Market on any Saturday from May 28 – June 18. (Let me know ahead, though!)


If you can think of anyone else who might be interested in this offer, could you please share this page with them? Thanks!

I would also be grateful for any Facebook/Twitter linkage you could give.


Here’s the list of herbs:

Annuals (one year only)

Rosie Basil – gorgeous deep purple

Lemon Basil

Spicy Globe Basil

Thai Basil

Genovese Basil – the usual pesto variety


Curly Parsley

Flat-Leafed Parsley

Rosemary (some overwinter this one by bringing it in the house)


Perennials (will come back again if it’s dug into the ground)

Chocolate Mint


Italian Oregano

Greek Oregano





And – here’s a side view of what the pot will look like:

I wish I had a gorgeous picture of one of these planted up with herbs at their peak to show you, but it’s my first year offering them in these containers. I keep telling myself, next year will have lots of beautiful promo pics. Of the planters, but also of all the tomato varieties and super amazing hot peppers too.

Thanks so much to everyone who is encouraging me along the way – new friends and old. Much appreciated.

    I could pick them up at your own greenhouse around May 26/27…does that work?

  • Hi Deborah,
    Thanks for your order, and for the tweet!

    Your pot will be ready on May 23. If you are unable to come by until May 26/27, then maybe you could come Monday the 30th? Or Tuesday the 31. That’s if you wanted to pick it up at my greenhouse (my hours are Monday and Tuesday 11-9). If you wanted to pick it up at market on Saturday the 28 it would be closer to the days you had in mind….

    Thanks again!

  • Hi Sarah,
    Thanks! I’ll come on the Tuesday – the 31st – to your greenhouse. Hope the rain isn’t cramping your style!
