Winter Herbs

As Hearty Canadians, we know what it means when we hear  "winter is coming".
We know that Thanksgiving has arrived, hockey season has begun;  snow blowers and shovels replace the lawn furniture and garden gnomes.  We winterize our gardens, say goodbye to the butterflies and brace ourselves for the impending arrival of S-N-O-W.

This winter why not keep a little bit of summer alive, by bringing your garden indoors with an Urban Cultivator herb garden.

Herbs are easily grown and are more than a wonderful addition to your kitchen decor; they bring culinary flavor to every meal, and provide endless necessary medicinal uses.
