Herbs de Provence Seed Collection joins together 10 of the most essential culinary herbs native to the Mediterranean
that have helped shape the identity of French cuisine. Featuring both tender annuals and hardy perennials, Herbs de
Provence seeds will keep your herb garden brimming with both sweet and savory highlights throughout the year. Named
after the French region of Provence, the seasoning ‚¬“Herbes de Provence‚¬ is a traditional dry blend of about 5 or 6
interchangeable herbs commonly grown throughout the south of France.
Herbs de Provence Seed Collection is more than just a French culinary seed assortment, but an introduction to
companion planting and maximizing your garden and kitchen space. Each of the 10 herbs are native to the
Mediterranean and benefit from being grown together in the same full sun garden bed with summers as cool as
Marseilles. Whether tender annual basil or frost-hardy rosemary, each of these 10 herbs can be grown in pots or
containers for convenient moving in and out of the kitchen. Keep Herbs de Provence out in the full and bring them
into the kitchen while cooking or for any fresh garnishment.
The Seeds Inside The Kit:
Basil: (Ocimum basilicum) - No summer garden is complete without the bright flavor
and aroma of basil, one of the staples of all Mediterranean cuisine. Basil is the quintessential
‚¬“windowsill‚¬ herb as it grows just as readily in any sunny window as it does out in the garden. Basil is one
of the many aromatic herbs in the mint family Lamiaceae and grows flowers, and prunes very similar
to peppermint. Unlike the drought tolerant perennials featured in Herbs de Provence, basil is a tender
annual that requires daily watering to ensure flavor.
Thyme: (Thymus vulgaris) - Thyme is quick to germinate, easy to maintain, and
truly one of the most effortless herbs to establish in any garden. Native to the shallow and rocky soils of
the Mediterranean hills, thyme has weed-like hardiness and is able to thrive in some of the most difficult
gardens across the country. Similar to rosemary, lavender, and oregano, mature thyme develops a thick and
woody base able to allow the plant to overwinter in more northern regions down to -20°F. Thyme is an ideal
herb for container gardening as it thrives from the reliable drainage offered by pots.
Parsley: (Petroselinum crispum) - Parsley is one of the most ideally suited herbs
to grow indoors near a sunny window because parsley is an annual requiring cool summers, partial shade, and
consistently moist soil, all of which can be easily managed indoors. Grown most commonly as an annual,
parsley is a biennial closely related to cilantro, dill, fennel that will produce flowering umbels very
similar to other herbs in the aromatic Apiaceae family. Parsley is a tender annual that should be
watered daily to keep from bolting.
Rosemary: (Salvia rosmarinus) - With more than two dozen cultivars in the species,
rosemary thrives in many climates across the country as a low-growing and hard-to-kill shrub known to live
for up to 10-20 years. Rosemary regularly performs as an outdoor perennial in hardiness zones 6-11, going
dormant during freezing winters in more northern climates. And like its perennial relative lavender,
rosemary can be notorious for a low and slow germination rate but, once you successfully germinate your
first couple of starts, you‚¬ll come to find that the only real secret to growing rosemary is patience.
Fennel: (Foeniculum vulgare) - Fennel is one of the more exotic members of the
traditional Herbes de Provence seasoning blend, offering a uniquely savory spice often described as a more
mature variant of black licorice. Fennel looks nearly identical to dill while in the garden except that
fennel can mature at about 5 feet tall and famously produces a thick and bulbous base like the Hamburg
Rooted parsley, which can be harvested just as readily as its leaves, seeds, or flowers. Fennel grows
ideally alongside other herbs also requiring cool and dry summers.
Oregano: (Origanum vulgare) - Like many species from the Lamiaceae family
such as mint and balm, oregano produces a rhizome root system which is responsible for making the genus
Origanum fairly invasive and hard to kill. Once established, oregano will readily re-seed itself and stay in
your garden for as long as you‚¬ll have it around. Weed-like and hardy after its first overwintering, oregano
is commonly known as a ‚¬˜wild marjoram‚¬ for having a woodier, earthier habit and flavor than true marjoram.
Sweet Marjoram: (Origanum majorana) - Nearly identical to oregano in appearance,
habit, and taxonomy, sweet marjoram is the more tender and complex member of the oregano genus
Origanum. Marjoram is just as often referred to as sweet marjoram to better distinguish its more
subtle, citrusy, and floral notes from the more robust ‚¬“wild marjoram‚¬ (oregano). Although marjoram is
naturalized to some warmer regions of the Meditteranean, it is actually a native perennial to the Middle
East and Arabian Peninsula, still thriving on the same arid conditions in many home gardens across the
Lavender: (Lavandula angustifolia) - Lavender is one of the most popular of the
Mediterranean herbs, native to the perennially warm and dry hillsides of southern France and Italy. Ideal
for a wide variety of gardens across North America, lavender is a tenacious and frost-hardy perennial known
to live 15-20 years with optimal climate and pruning. Although not traditionally considered one of the true
"herbes de provence", we would be remiss to not include culinary lavender along with some of the best and
brightest of the region.
Tarragon: (Artemisia dracunculoides) - Also known widely as estragon,
tarragon is one of the more unique herbs featured in Herbs de Provence as tarragon is actually more closely
related to a sunflower than either rosemary or thyme. While French tarragon is more traditionally used in
Herbes de Provence, unfortunately, it's only cultivated from cuttings and root division rather than being
started from seed. Similar to other perennial herbs, tarragon will live perennially for several years with
the proper sun, pruning, and well-drained soil.
Summer Savory: (Satureja hortensis) - Widely referred to as ‚¬“mountain savory‚¬ for
the rocky and unforgiving habitat from which its native, summer savory is a hardy and tolerant annual ideal
for a variety of gardens. Member of the mint family, savory tastes similar to sage, rosemary, and thyme
while being a popular choice as a bushy hedgerow for any home, garden, or business. Summer savory is native
to the eastern Mediterranean and, although not too popular in the United States, it has been a staple of the
traditional Herbes de Provence blend for the last fifty years.
