I went to the herb nursery down in Athens, Ohio today, after doing the farmer's market in Clintonville. This nursery has medicinals, traditionals, ornamentals, and culinary plants of all kinds. I thought I'd share what I saw and you can plant geek out with me!
|There were two greenhouses- this one was the larger of the two and was in |
roughly alphabetical order for a lot of plants.
|The right side of the larger greenhouse.|
|My apprentice got this one, along with henbane and datura.|
|All the plants had great informative tags.|
|Picking out a datura.|
|If I get the shop, this cheerful flowering rosemary will go by the door!|
|I think milk thistle is gorgeous, don't you?|
|Our box of delights. That rangy one in the back is an ephedra for me!|
|This leaf surprised me and bit me!|
|I took a pic to better show off it's purple spikes.|
|Coming back for this one.|
|This is the spiky plant, aka naranjilla.|
|We are coming back for this one, too.|
We took the trip to the nursery, and then worked on my presentation for this month at City Folks Farm Shop on March 11: Planting a Medicinal Garden. Pre-registration is required.
