Purple is the new color of health and mental health awareness for 2018, mirroring the Pantone color of the year - UltraViolet. When it comes to edibles, purple color is a good indicator of nutrient density and antioxidants. Introducing purple fruits and veggies into your diet is easy - especially if you grow it in your own backyard or on your kitchen countertop!


Homestead Gardens can help! Pick up these wonderful purple plants at the garden center today! 








Don’t be discouraged if you have a small space - all of these plants can be grown in containers or raised beds.


In addition to the health and wellness of customers, Homestead Gardens is committed to improving the health and wellness of the planet. A great way to do both was to partner with Chesapeake Harvest to bring customers a new line of naturally and locally grown herbs and veggies. The 100% biodegradable fiber pot will naturally deteriorate in your garden or compost bin without any additional processing. This not only saves you time but saves precious resources and reduces the amount of plastic that ends up in the landfills.
