The Herb Cottage

The Herb Cottage is your resource for Information on herbs, herb growing, organically growing herbs, vegetables, flowers or shrubs and trees in your landscape. Whether you have a large garden plot or a few containers with herbs and flowers, I have information for you!

The Herb Cottage Nursery is a nursery in rural Lavaca County, TX. I focus on herb plants of all kinds, a great and varied selection of succulents and cacti plus some native and adapted garden plants. I am one of only a handful of nurseries selling Olive Trees in the area. 


 Those of you who are familiar with The Herb Cottage Website, will undoubtedly notice this is not the same old website you’re used to! You’re right!

I’ve been working on this new site for a while now, and while it’s not complete yet with all the info from the old website, I wanted to launch it. I still have to add the rest of the newsletter archives and more information in each of the Information sections. But, I’m working hard on it and it should be complete in a couple of weeks!

In the meantime, if you pine for the old format or are looking for newsletter archives that haven’t been added to this new format yet, here is a link to the old website.

I hope you enjoy the new format and find it just as easy to navigate.


Here are some links to get you started:

ICM is a treasure trove of the unusual, necessary and eclectic. Browse through batteries, garden hoses and nozzles, wheels, imported foods, plastic ware, backpacks, gloves, toys and much, much more. Then, go outside into the greenhouse, look at the hydroponic growing system and check out plants for sale from The Herb Cottage.

Look around outside and notice all the water capture features, storage tanks for water, the bog gardens and ponds. The whole of the Industrial Country Market is Off The Grid. It’s an amazing place and well worth a visit.
