Live Herbs to Plant in Your Own Garden!!! As promised, at Save With Green we strive to offer our visitors the best options for Going Green. And we can hardly think of a more productive way to Go Green than to grow your own herbs. Well, there's many ways to Go Green, but this is definitely a good one.
If you are ready to start your own herb garden, make a windowsill planter or even make your own herbal tinctures, we can't think of a better supplier of live plants and herbs than Richters. Based out of Toronto (a very green place we might add), Richters has been in business since 1969. They have one of the largest supplies of herbs, seeds and herbal fluid extracts of any herb grower we have seen. Furthermore, Richters publishes their comprehensive catalogue on their website. Search through an alphabetized listing of hundreds of plants and herbs (probably the largest catalogue online), most of which are available as dried herbs, seeds, live plants and fluid extracts.
Considering the large scale of business that Richters does (in many ways they are like a wholesale club), the prices for live herbs are very affordable. Common varieties of single herb plants sell for under $2, herb plug twelve packs sell for $12 (that's just $1 per herb), and full herb trays (120 plants) sell for as little as $45, which amounts to about $0.38 per herb. 50 mL Fluid herbal extracts, which are stronger than regular tinctures, sell for only $10. As you might expect with all the growing going on at Richters, they are well suited to harvest and dry their own herbs. Everything from Kava Kava root to French Tarragon can be purchased in packages as little as 25 grams and up to 1,000 grams.
Heirloom Organics is a one-of-a-kind online shop specializing in non-hybrid organic seeds. While they do not carry live herb plants, per say, Heirloom Organics quality organic seeds are just one step away from helping you grow the purest, organic live herb plants ever to sprout from your garden or planter. Heirloom's "Kitchen Herb Pack" costs just $39, and contains ten different non-hybrid, organic culinary herb seeds, including large leaf Basil, Dill, Florence Fennel, Sage, Cilantro, Thyme, Oregano and more. Heirloom also carries a Medicinal Herb pack, which includes organic herb seeds of Echinacea, Feverfew, Lavender, Mullein, Valerian, Nettle and Fennel. If you don't want to take the chance of having your live herbs shipped, or simply don't know when you will be able to transplant your live herb plants to the garden, going with Heirloom's herb seeds is a wise choice. Even if you're not ready to purchase herb seeds, a visit to Heirloom Organic's website is well worth the time. Their organic gardening guide is one of the most helpful and comprehensive we've come across. Learn sustainable planting techniques for every kind of vegetable, grain, fruit and herbs imaginable.
Committed to sustainable gardening, Nature Hills offers a good selection of organic herbs at outstanding prices.

Nature Hills also guarantees the life of your herb plant for 1 year from the date of purchase. If your plant loses the ghost in a year's time (but we know it won't 'cause you have a super green thumb), but if it does, simply email or write Nature Hills with a description of events that led to your little herb's demise, and Nature Hills will send you a new one for half the cost. Considering the quality of these organic live herbs, you would be hard pressed to get a better guarantee at your local nursery.
There's not many live herb dealers on the internet, but maybe that's because Richters has it covered. Not only do they offer one of the largest selection of potted herbs in various sizes, they are the most affordable as well. So, save yourself a trip to the plant nursery and view the online catalog at Richters.
