Herbs

herb greenhouse new

Diane Winslow founded the nursery in 1979, and back then the focus was exclusively on herbs. Since then Diane has expanded her business into a full-blown nursery. However we still retain a special place in our hearts for the many wonderful varieties of herbs of the world, and are proud of having the most comprehensive selection in the city. The Austin Chronicle has named It's About Thyme as 'the ultimate nursery for herbs.' Whether for culinary or medicinal purposes, or just having them as attractive landscape plants, we encourage our gardeners to bring the magic of herbs into their lives. We grow hundreds of them ourselves – and here is a just a sample, divided into six country/state culinary designations. (We also sell dried herbs, herb blends and flowers in bulk in the gift shop.)
