It’s ‘thyme’ for herb sale

Published 1:14am Friday, May 3, 2013

It’s not quite every herb from A to Z, but herbs from anise to yarrow will be available at the Washington Garden Club’s annual herb sale Saturday at the N.C. Estuarium.

From 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the club offers herbs from members’ gardens and Raindrop Ridge Farm on Camp Leach Road. Club members spent part of Thursday preparing a section of the N.C. Estuarium for the herb sale. Members arranged trays of herbs and place markers that provide names of the herbs.

The club uses proceeds from the herb sale to maintain its gardens at Brown Library, the southwest corner of North Market and Third streets and the Grace Harwell Martin Senior Center, all in Washington. The club also donates plants to gardens such as the Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo.

This year, the sale includes combination planters of herbs.

Chris Young, spokeswoman for the club, said she and other club members are expecting a good turnout for the sale.
