Chives Our gardens would not be complete without several patches of chives. Not only are the tender, hollow onion-like leaves so tasty when chopped on cottage or fresh cheese, but the blooms are pretty enough to be included in some of our flower beds! Very hardy perennial 100 seeds per pack
Mammoth Long Island Dill
Dill I use a lot of dill, both fresh and dehydrated. Of course there are abundant dill pickles, come late summer. But then there’s chopped dill ferns in fresh cheeses, on casseroles and many other recipes. The tall, fern-like plants are even beautiful at the back of a flower bed! Pollinators love the flowers too. Annual 50 seeds per pack
Greek Oregano Abundant fragrant green leaves are one of my favorite seasonings in many recipes from pizza to meats. The lavender flowers are also so pretty they belong in a flower bed! While Greek oregano is a perennial in many warmer climates, I find while it will not over-winter in northern Minnesota, it does happily self-seed! 100 seeds per pack
Sage I can’t imagine a garden without this old heirloom. Not only are the leaves so fragrant one can use them as an air freshener, they are very necessary in many recipes from poultry stuffing to sausages. This is a very hardy plant and will even over-winter in some locations. But we’ll call it an annual to cover all bases. 100 seeds per pack
Sweet Basil No kitchen garden would be complete without this savory herb. The lush, abundant leaves are idea in all Italian recipes, salads and for pesto. You can cut basil many times all summer, then let the plant go on to make seeds for next year. Annual 100 seeds per pack.
