The Colonial Triangle of Virginia Unit of the Herb Society of America is set to hold its annual plant sale this month — rain or shine.
The sale will be held Saturday, April 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at King of Glory Lutheran Church, located at 4897 Longhill Road in Williamsburg, according to an herb society news release.
Various herbs will be for sale, including common sweet basil, thyme and rosemary, according to Donna Pratt, herb society spokeswoman.
Other less-common herbs, such as lemon verbena, Thai basil, three varieties of lavender, cilantro, bee balm, tarragon, fennel and scented geraniums, will also be for sale.
It doesn’t end with plants, however. Crafts from locals will also be available, including matted landscape art photos by a local photographer and herbal soaps produced by an herb society member.
The group’s past annual plant sales have been held at Christopher Newport University, but will now be at King of Glory church this year, Pratt said.
“This is not only more convenient for Williamsburg area residents, but also provides an indoor venue in case of inclement weather,” Pratt said.
