Any good nurseries for cooking herbs in NJ?

Hi all. Does anyone know of a good nursery in Jersey that might have cooking herb plants in the early spring (like next month)? I am in Summit, NJ and looking for a nursery with in 20 miles or so. Also, I work in the city so if anyone knows of a NYC plant store that might have cooking herb plants ready early would work too. Thanks in advance.

  1. It's farther that 20 miles, but Well-Sweep Herb Farm out near Hackettstown is worth an annual pilgrimage. Their selection is unbeatable, and the folks there are knowledgeable and great to talk to. I'm not sure how early they have plants available, but it's definitely worth a call.

    1. I think this is more than 20 miles from you also but here's another one:

      Whiskey Run Herb Farm
      188 Locktown Flemington Rd
      Flemington, NJ 08822
      (908) 782-1278

      I haven't been there in a couple of years so I would definitely call before you go.‎

      1. Well Sweep Farm is hands down the best source, especially if you are looking for something specific. Most of the local garden centers have your basics, though.

        1. There's an herb farm in Cranbury on Plainsboro Rd. It's called Rejay's
