Hopefully we get a break from the rain so we can all get out and finish planting our gardens. Whether you are planting in the garden, a raised bed or other container Sargent’s has a huge selection of herb and vegetable plants as well as garden seeds too. The greenhouse is full of peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage and more but we also have some other unique offerings. Available selection changes often so stop out soon or call to check on what we have in stock.
Can you smell it? Nothing beats fresh basil on pasta, pizza, salads and whatever else your taste buds desire. Sweet basil is a great general use basil but we also carry thai and purple varieties too. Other herbs available, often in several varieties, include borage, sage, cilantro, parsley, mint, rosemary, dill, oregano, thyme, chives and lemon balm.
Looking for a little or a lot of heat in your meals and salsa this summer? Sargent’s has the hot pepper selection for you with jalapenos, ghost peppers, habanero, serrano, fatalii and more plus bell pepper and banana pepper options too.
