LILL'S HERB GARDEN -
The Herb &
Flower Garden is beckoning you to "come out and
smell the flowers", as the expression goes. Lill
grows a wide range of flowers trying to have
something in bloom all summer long, particularly
native plants to South Carolina and also
old-time and heirloom plants and herbs.
Come on out and have a stroll! Located on
the same property as the cottage in Blackville,
we invite you to come and learn about the many
uses of herbs in your cooking or decorations and
growing. The most requested information is
the history and making of a Tussie Mussie.
