Hazelwood Herb Farm

07_07_2017_05

There is an herbal nursery in Nanaimo (Cedar) that we have been meaning to go to for a long time, but never quite got around to it. Even though it was a little late in the season we did make a trip there mid-June and we were really surprised at all the great stuff they still had. We grabbed a few things and they’ve all been growing along quite happily in the sunshine! Here are some photos I grabbed so we could have a record of what everything was.

This German chamomile is already flowering! I’ve wanted a big patch of chamomile for a while, but have had a hard time getting starters. Finally this year I started a few from seed and also grabbed these last ones from Hazelwood. Yay πŸ™‚

They’ve all been planted in groups and we are hoping they will fill out quickly. I’m pretty excited about the stuff we got and next year we will go right at the start of the season for the best selection. DEFINITELY go check out Hazelwood Herb Farm if you are in the Cedar area!!

  1. I love your herb garden and really enjoyed your unique variety. I usually expect to see oregano and mint and it was so exciting to see more herbs. They look so healthy and beautifully planted!
