Why You Should Grow Your Own Vegetables and Herbs

Planting a garden full of flowers creates a pleasant scene to see outside your home every day. But what about plants that do more than just look beautiful? Why not plant something you can actually use? Here at Leck’s Greenhouses, Bucks County’s leading garden center, we have a host of healthy vegetables and delicious herbs that you can easily grow, cook and eat!

 

Grow Plants with a Purpose

 

Vegetables are some of the healthiest foods that you can put in your body, providing you with multiple vitamins as well as necessary nutrients like calcium, magnesium, fiber and potassium.

 

We have over a dozen types of tomatoes, as well as more than a dozen types of peppers, including both hot and sweet!  We also have cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant and more.

 

Using fresh herbs, on the other hand, is an easy and tasty way to add healthy nutrients to your diet, offering vitamins, antioxidants, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits. In addition, tending to or simply visiting your herb garden can even help relieve stress. Gardening alone is very relaxing, but herb gardening combines the stress-relieving effects of gardening with the natural stress-relief of aromatherapy.

 

With our collection, you’ll never need to buy spices again. You can grow lavender, basil, sage, thyme, rosemary, mint, oregano, cilantro and more. These can be the perfect complements to your grilled veggies or any other home-cooked meal.

 

You’ll feel a sense of pride, learning a new skill and becoming self-sufficient. Plus, you will save money in the long run.

 

See for Yourself!

 

Our hours of operation for May have expanded. We are now open every day from 9 am to 5 pm, including Sunday. Not only can our team help you select the perfect plants, but we can also tell you how! We’ll make sure you have all the tools and supplies you need.
