Vegetables are easy to grow even for the beginner gardener. We carry a wide variety peppers and tomatoes, our two most in demand vegetables. New this year, in addition to some of our larger sizes, we will offer a line of oriental vegetables including Pak Choi and Okrain to include in our already extensive line up.
Herbs are prized for more than their beauty, with uses ranging from culinary to medicinal; from aromatic to cosmetic. However you choose to define an herb, they have had a long, rich past which weaves through history. Herbs: Common herbs that we carry at Alsip Home & Nursery include Basil, Cilantro, Sage, Parsley, Rosemary, Lavender, and Chives.
In 2009 Alsip Home & Nursery began to offer our own brand of vegetables and herbs called “Perfect Choice” from our very own Kingsbury Acres. This full line of vegetables and herbs include basil, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, zucchini, and much more. We’ve selected the very best varieties bred for disease and pest resistance, production, and overall garden performance.
