• Catnip - an early start this year thanks to our unusually warm winter.  I love its purple leaves.  They will lose the purple as they grow and mature.

  • It's that time of year again!  Starting herb seeds in the greenhouse for the sale in May.  Lemon basil, lime basil, holy basil and Thai basil are all slow growers so they get sown a month ahead of the other basils.  Customers don't like tiny plants so I give these basils more time to grow.  In May they will be the same size as the other basils.  Kind of sneaky but the sale is a fundraiser for Rutgers Gardens so I need to sell as many plants as possible.

  • After the snow.  Anouk Lavender bent and buried in heavy wet snow.  It looks awful but the snow will insulate it from the cold weather.  Fingers crossed that it will stand straight and tall again in the spring.
