Tea Plant (Camellia sinensis)

It’s tea time! Camellia sinensis, commonly known as the Tea Plant, is a beloved species that has earned its place in history as the producer of one of the world's most popular beverages. Its young, succulent shoots yield an abundant supply of tea leaves, which can be processed into the flavorful and aromatic teas we all know and love. Did you know that the type of tea you get depends on how you dry and cure the leaves? If you're a fan of black tea, let the leaves oxidize before drying. For green tea, skip the oxidation step and go straight to drying. And if you prefer white tea, simply wither the leaves until they are dry, without any oxidation or rolling.

While Camellia sinensis is hardy in the southern United States, it can also be grown as a potted plant indoors during the winter in cooler climates. The Tea Plant makes a wonderful addition to indoor decor, thriving as a potted plant during the winter. Its dark green, glossy leaves and delicate, fragrant white flowers add an elegant touch to any living space. This versatile plant is perfect for anyone looking to grow their own tea and add a touch of elegance to their garden or home. Whether you're a tea connoisseur or simply looking for a charming addition to your indoor garden, the Tea Plant is a versatile and delightful choice.

Edible Yellow Ginger Root Plants

Edible Yellow Ginger Root Plant

Edible Yellow Ginger Root adds flavor and zing to many delicious culinary dishes. Pickled ginger root is a staple when eating sushi. Ginger has long been used in herbal medicine for its digestive properties. Plant ginger in a large pot or fabric grow bag that gives it plenty of room to expand. Ginger grows up and out from the original rhizome. Place 4-5” of potting media with compost or other organic matter mixed into the bottom of the pot. Add the Ginger Root and cover with 1-2” of soil. Make sure the roots stay warm. Give lots of water and fertilizer during the growing season. Every 4-6 weeks, add 2-3” of soil on top of the growing ginger. During September to October, you’ll be able to harvest baby ginger that has a mild flavor without skin or fiber. This can be pickled, frozen, canned or candied. For a more robust flavor, allow the ginger to mature until late December or early January. (Those in northern climates can bring the plants inside.) Once the leaves begin to die back, stop watering and harvest your ginger roots. The ginger roots will have a thick skin and a hotter flavor. You’ll be able to enjoy delicious ginger root that you’ve grown in your own garden. We recommend 2 or 3 plants for a 14” pot.
