Where to buy potted herbs, specifically lemon verbena

Does anyone know where to get some potted Lemon Verbena? I'm hoping for the Cambridge/Somerville/Boston area, but will travel if there's a great recommendation in a suburb. Or, I don't mind potting it myself if there's a reliable source for good LV seeds.... Help!

  1. In a few weeks, Russels in Wayland and Russo's in Waltham (Watertown?) will have all kinds of herbs for garden starting.....

      Pemberton's will have them as well, but it's probably a month too early.

    2. Allendale Farm on the Brookline / JP border, Verrill Farms in Concord, or Wilsons in Lexington. Also, if you wait for May, the farmer's market in Copley, Gov't Center, and / or Dewey Square will have a large variety of potted herbs.

      1. I saw some at Ricky's, the big garden shop in Union Square, today.
