Willow Oak Flower & Herb Farm
Like the sign says Willow Oak Flower and Herb Farm is "A Fairyland of Flowers"
Our recent Traveling Herb Seminar tour of Maryland Gardens brought us to this herb shop, and gardens. We were greeted with Lavender Limeade and were allowed to wander and enjoy the garden beds. She has a very large vegetable garden, a white garden with all white flowers, a tea garden with Camellia sinensis as well as herbs used in tea such as hibiscus, lemon balm, chamomile, etc.
There was a tropical garden with Vanilla Bean, chocolate, cinnamon, star anise and more. A cutting garden with lots of flowers, a fragrant garden, a rose garden and the list goes on and on. This garden had a more natural flair and around every turn was another surprise including the little Fairy corner garden, too. Set in the middle of urban sprawl -- this is surely an oasis for the wee folk (and the mortals, too!)
