What to Know About the Plant

The Cardamom Spice plant, also known as Elettaria cardamomum, is a member of the ginger family and is prized for its aromatic seeds. It features long, lance-shaped leaves with a vibrant green color and white flowers with yellow streaks. The plant can grow up to 10-15 feet tall, making it an attractive addition to any garden or landscape. When the seeds are crushed, they release a fragrant aroma with hints of citrus and pine, adding a delightful scent to the surrounding area.

Enhancing Your Fruitscape™

Integrating the Cardamom Spice plant into your fruitscape design can create a sensory oasis in your garden. This exotic herb pairs well with a variety of fruit trees, such as citrus (e.g., orange, grapefruit), apple, and pear, infusing their fruits with a hint of exotic spice. Tropical plants like banana trees or pineapple plants can also thrive alongside cardamom, creating a lush and vibrant landscape. Additionally, herbs like mint, basil, and cilantro can complement the aromatic qualities of cardamom, providing a well-rounded and flavorful garden space.

Planting & Care
Fruitscaping with Herbs & Veggies

Every good kitchen garden needs to have an herb section. A walk through a garden planted with herbs is truly a sensual experience. Their beautifully textured leaves invite you to stop and touch them, and then reward you with a delightful array of heavenly scents. Herbs can serve many functions in the edible landscape, creepers like oregano, mints and thyme make great ground cover. Low growers like sage, chives and perennial onions are good for edging flower beds and will help in insect control. Taller evergreens like rosemary are wonderful used as low hedges or for planting around the foundation of houses. Herbs also lend themselves well to being grown in containers. Tuck a few pots close to the kitchen so they’ll be handy when you need them.

Growing your own herbs is well worth the effort. The quality and flavor of fresh picked herbs is so much better than the dried products you find in the grocery store. Our climate makes it possible to grow a very wide range of herbs. The hot humid summer are perfect for herbs like basil, Thai ginger and tea camellias. Try the more Mediterranean herbs like lavender,  sage and Thyme in the winter time, they love the cool and are less apt to succumb to fungus.

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
