Text Box: ABOUT EMILY’S GARDEN

Emily’s Garden is the name of our line of nature crafted items. It includes floral waters, fragrant potpourris, lotions, and oils. A limited amount of potpourris will be offered this year and will always vary due to the weather and garden harvests.

We’ve been involved with herbs and gardens since the late 1960’s. In the mid-1970’s we became more involved with woods and forest gardens while living in the NJ Pinelands. Later, in the 1980’s, we worked more with potpourris in another area of NJ. The methods and materials used were explored further.

In the 1990’s we acquired a larger property and shortly thereafter built our first flower shed (we call it our ‘cabin’) where we could expand the amount harvested and dried from the ceiling in the dark. Thus began the herb/ flower drying in its present form. The only variation in the past 20 years has been the amounts and type of materials dried. This all depends on the weather each year for the success or failure of the crop.

Fortunately, herbs usually require poorer soil and drier conditions. Unfortunately, the past 4-5 years we’ve seen a lot of rain, heavy rains, and that has led to more loss of plants than the previous years of drought! Much of our boxwood also was lost to too much water.

We’re hoping that this coming year the weather will be more cooperative and the crops of herbs and flowers back to abundance that they were in the earlier 2000’s.

ABOUT OUR LABEL PHOTO Our Emily passed away on Aug. 27, 2014. This photo is Emily on Easter in 2014 walking in her cart. The gardens were her favorite place and many times she wouldn’t want to come inside. Lavender was her favorite herb.
