Medicinal Herbs

These plants are a personal favorite of Heidi’s.  Most are perennials, which live for many years, becoming large stable plants in the garden, requiring less care with increased benefits.  Most of the herbs are sold via Sonoma County Herb Exchange, located in the town of Sebastopol (in Sonoma County, California), and designed to connect growers with herbal practitioners.  Cut to order to ensure freshness and no waste.
