At the NE Grows show yesterday, I met Patti Moreno, the Garden Girl. She had a lovely stand and since I am a sucker for beautiful packaging, I was drawn to it immediately. Lucky for me that there is a lot more to what she is doing that just pretty packaging. Her website is full of video how-to’s for urban gardeners but my favorite line was her seeds. She has a beautifully packaged heirloom seed collection each of which is directed towards growing your own food. There is the American Kitchen Garden for growing Shaker Medicinal herbs (pictured) as well as the Italian kitchen garden , the Latin Caribbean Kitchen garden, the French Kitchen garden, and the Asian Kitchen garden.
Each set is a great combination of plants – below are all of the Shaker Medicinal Herbs.
