Our garden center in Westport is a popular destination for a wide selection of USDA certified organic herb and vegetable plants, organic gardening solutions, and free workshops.
USDA certified organic herb and vegetable plants
We are the largest herb plant grower on the East Coast and provide USDA Certified Organic herb and vegetable plants to retailers all over the northeast. Many non-organic growers use chemicals to fertilize and treat plant diseases and pests. These chemicals leave residue on plants inside and out. Instead of spraying for bugs, we release “beneficial” insects to deal with the “bad bugs.” Each of our plants is grown in an organic certified soil blend. This custom blend has taken us four years to perfect, ensuring the highest amount of essential oil and taste in each herb and green. Hydroponically grown herbs can not compare in flavor or nutrition to their soil grown counterparts. Organic growing is sometimes more difficult, but the rewards surely outweigh the extra effort.
