We stock a very nice eclectic selection
of flowers, and few really nice reasonably priced shrubs, but
our "claim to fame" if you will, for the spring planting
season is the absolutely INSANE selection of VEGETABLE AND HERB
plants. Tomatoes, peppers, heirloom squash, eggplant, okra, etc.
all set up in displays that are as easy and fun to shop as any
fancy seed catalog.
Our herb plant selection has been
growing to become what is more than likely the region's most comprehensive
selection of culinary, medicinal, and spirtual species. Many of
which have multiple uses that are unfamiliar to most gardeners.
Mint for example can be dried and strewn about the home as an
organic alternative to traps and poisons to repel mice form the
home. White Sage (Salvia Apiana) has been used by the native peoples
of western North America for spiritual cleansing rititual for
centuries, but has antiseptic properties that make it quite useful
in the modern home and garden.
Our signage, especially on the more
"exotic" species has been deeply researched to give
our shoppers the most accurate information available as to why
these species should be of interest to the herb gardener of the
Our culinary herb selection will
delight the the beginner and the experienced gourmet alike.
In an age of synthetic pharmaceauticals
with potentially deadly side effects we endeavor to provide the
growing number of herbalists with a local source of plants commonly
used in holistic practice. To this effect we must make the disclaimer
that Funke's Greenhouses can not take any responsibility for any
adverse effects from the use of plants. Always seek advice from
a professional before using a plant medicinally.
