   2011 Pre-Order Sale of   Maine. They are field grown, well rooted, and necessarily hardy.
                            Julie and Peter Beckford believe the plants gardeners choose to

                            to Maine, it is noted. The medicinal and culinary herbs are all over-
                            wintered, hardy perennials. All plants are MOFGA certified organic.
