| What Growing Information is Provided with Richters Herb Plants |

Question from: Opal Harwell
Posted: Before April 1998
I would like to learn whether of not you send with your orders information on how to propagate the herbs whether ordered by seeds or plants. If I purchased a plant such as stevia, would you pass along the information on how to grow and propagate your own plants. I would like to purchase many herbs, but I would also like to learn these things to be able to gather my own seeds and spread them in the wild. They may not be natural, but I would like to naturalize some herbs in my area.
Each plant comes with a tag that lists the uses of the plant, and gives height and sun exposure information. Each order comes with a brochure "Growing Herbs Indoors and Out" which describes how to get the best results from your herbs. Beyond that, more specific information about each herb can be obtained from the many excellent books that deal with growing herbs. Some examples are Thomas Debaggio’s "Growing Herbs from Seed, Cutting & Root" or John Mason’s "Growing Herbs". These and others are available from Richters.
