Herbs can be used for medicine, for crafts, for gardening, soap, perfumes, all sorts of things. We have clothing with a garden theme, that is floral patterns. We have tools that can be used in the garden. He have a lot of antiques, because people like to put antiques in their gardens. Anything that can be used as a container," said Baker.
