Dwarf Cosmos Flower Mix, AAS Winner, Sensation Mix, Mexican, Annual, Cosmos Bipinnatus

These showy, colorful blossoms will have the neighbors talking. This easy-to-grow annual is shorter than most Cosmos varieties, so it fits well in smaller spaces. Cosmos is great for butterfly gardens and cut flower gardens alike.

Because of their Mexican heritage, these bright annuals meet high heat and drought conditions with native beauty and vigor. Spanish conquistadors searching for gold discovered these flowers on their journeys through Mexico. Mission gardens often included these flowers, which priests gave the name "cosmos," the Greek word for a harmonious whole, because of their neatly spaced petals. Cosmos flowers made their way to England with Spanish ambassadors in the late 18th century, and to the United States in the following century.

Italian Giant Parsley, Gigante Di Napoli Italia, Large Leaf Herb - [ Garden Seeds, Seed2Go.ca] - V-GNP - Herb Seeds
  • -$0.16

Italian Giant Parsley, Gigante Di Napoli Italia, Large Leaf Herb

Gigante Di Napoli/ Italian Giant: Plant has an upright habit with medium cover. Plant will grow 22 – 24 cm (8-9in) long. Plant is uniformed and cylindrical with deep green and light green mottling 

Stronger taste than curly parsley. Superb flavour! A high yielding parsley producing flat, dark green leaves of excellent flavour.
Ideal for use in salads or cooking.

At first glimpse, Gigante resembles rangy, wild-looking celery! The deeply-indented leaves form an unexpectedly large, open plant growing to 3’ tall. Gigante is an obvious favorite of Italian cooks, since flat-leaved parsley is vital to their cuisine. These sweet, intensely-flavored leaves are most prized and central to almost every pasta sauce. Gigante is also perfect for gremolata, another savory Italian mixture used in Osso Buco, rice dishes or rubbed under the skin of fowl before roasting - try it! Combine the zest of three to four lemons, 1/3 to 1/2 cup chopped Gigante parsley, 1 minced garlic clove and 1 shallot. Using a sharp blade, chop everything together until finely minced and use immediately.

Cut leaves, just before use, in soups, carrots or garnish.

Watercress Spice, Chinese Herb, Mustard, Ancient Greek - [ Seed2Go - Canada ] - V-SW - Herb Seeds

Watercress Spice, Chinese Herb, Mustard, Ancient Greek

What is Watercress? A favorite with the English, this leafy green spice can be traced back to the Greeks, Romans, and Persians who used it for medical purposes, as a treatment (with vinegar) for insanity, as a stimulant, and as a breath freshener.
Raw watercress has a peppery taste, similar to other related plants like mustard and wasabi. Once cooked the pepperiness of watercress diminishes, leaving a distinctive vegetable flavour which tastes delicious in soups, stews and stir fries. More mature watercress can sometimes taste slightly bitter.
