    Getting ready for my new garden year and came across Fall/Winter 2014/2015 Catalog from Horizon Herbs, are you the same company? Address was nearly the same. Sat down and read the catalog, loved it and had to see if you were still around.

      Yes, we are the same family-owned organically certified medicinal herb seed and nursery we’ve always been. We adopted our old trademark “strictly medicinal” when we hatched the idea of dropping dried herbs, bookshelf, and stuff to focus more on live things. all the horizon herbs and strictly medicinal catalogs are interchangeable. Feel free to request an updated catalog through this website or call us at (541) 846-6704. richo
