Interesting seed blends
We’ve seen cleverly arranged pots bursting with themed plant mixes—herbs for your barbecue menu, salad mixes, etc. Seed companies are also cleverly packaging their blends.

Last year I discovered Mrs Richter’s Special Herbed Tea Blend, five herbs that can be planted together to create a flavourful caffeine-free brew. This year, I have a packet of the Quick Stirfry Blend ready to plant from Renee’s Garden’s new organic line. It’s a mixture of mizuna, mispoona, mild mustards and Russian kale. Yum!
