This new basil is very similar to Aroma with it's classic Genovese appearance and flavor. The leaves are large and perfect for making pesto!

OTHER COMMON HERBS


English Wedgewood Thyme

Perennial
The leaves of English thyme are slightly more broad than the narrow, pointy leaves of French thyme. This variety has dark green leaves with light green markings. The flavor is slightly sweeter and milder than French thyme and the plant grows taller. Cut back often to keep it full and bushy. Can't take super hot weather, so this is a good one to plant in partial shade.

NEW ADVENTUROUS HERB FAVE


Oregano, Kent Beauty

Annual
Kent Beauty oregano is grown in the herb garden mainly as an ornamental. It has a beautiful trailing habit that lends itself well to hanging baskets, planters, and garden walls. The blue-green leaves are oval shaped and silver-veined. The pink bracted, hop-like flowers cover the plant from summer through fall and are the main attraction. They can be used fresh or dried in flower arrangements. The aroma is milder than culinary oregano, but still very nice. Tender perennial, but can be brought in for the winter, then cut back before setting outside in the spring.

HYBRID SLICER


Mountain Magic

Red Tomato Ind.69 days

This bright red two-bite tomato is borne in clusters of 7-8 tomatoes. The relatively compact plants would do well in a large container. In one of Fedco’s trials, a single plant yielded 106 tomatoes in a 15 day period, all perfect except for three! We didn't count how many tomatoes we got off our single plant, but it had to be several hundred over the whole season. A great one for canning! Fruits are firm and keep well on the countertop. The texture is juicy with a rich, sprightly flavor. A real winner!
