Get Fresh Herbs on the Windowsill & into Dinner Plans
Create an herb container garden Saturday, April 18, anytime between 10 a.m.-3 p.m., at America’s Best Flowers, 4311 Vilas Hope Road. Fresh herbs feel indulgent, but keeping them in a kitchen window can be both practical and penny-wise.
“Herbs add so much to a meal, and it’s so easy to just snip off a few sprigs,” says Irene Padlin of America’s Best Flowers. “Come May, you can kick them outside to use all summer.”
Herbs do indulge the senses – they are delicious, aromatic and beautiful. Pick out sweet and savory flavors and favorite fragrances from over 25 herb varieties. Designers will be on-hand to help tease out the elegant play on texture and form inherent to herb gardens. Bring an empty container to fill with free potting soil.
