We got our plant from Monticello during the Harvest Festival a few years ago. They make fragrant houseplants(.Amomum cardamomum)
Your order is protected with the LocalHarvest money back guarantee.
I actually tried using the leaves in a mulled wine with great tasting results.I have also used the leaves to make Creme Brula. The leaves smell like the expensive seed spice. These are tropical plants so may need a sun room or greenhouse to produce flowers and seed. They are related to ginger and are and easy to grow houseplant. They do require regular watering. The plants grow to about 2 ft here in a pot. I also have some planted in an outside bed that is over 3 ft tall. I will put it in a pot for winter.
The crushed leaves have a wonderful aroma.
All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
