The Asheville Herb Festival is an event that we always get excited about at Sow True Seed because it marks the beginning of our Summer Plant starts! We select a range of our favorite seed varieties and have them grown locally, under USDA certified organic conditions.
The event itself is fantastic. There are a huge range of plant vendors in attendance with a great selection of vegetable and herb varieties. If you want to find something special, this is one of the best ways to find it! Plus you get to meet your local growers.
The 27th year is an extra special year:
This year the Herb Society of America will hold its annual national convention in Asheville during our Festival Weekend. Scores of herb lovers from around the United States will be at the Doubletree Hotel in Biltmore (with overflow at other hotels).
If you’re in the area, be sure to swing by and say hello. We’ll have seed packets for warm season plants, plus all of our summer plant starts. Popular varieties sell quickly, so come early to avoid disappointment.
