Hi, my name is Mary Lou Saso. I grew up working with my parents in the Saso's Herb Gardens in Saratoga, California. There I developed my natural love for scented herbs and unusual plants and flowers. Inspiration for creating my wreaths and other herbal products, began while helping my mother create a variety of Christmas ornaments. I have continued to use these design skills along with propagating and cultivating the herbs I use to create fragrant herbal wreaths. With the help of my husband, we grow most of the floral materials and wild-craft the others. I think you will be pleased with my wreaths, as I really love creating decorations with all of the fragrant herbs and vast assortment of plant materials that grow in gorgeous Northern California.
Growing up in the Saso Herb Gardens will always be the most wonderful memories of hard work and the abundant harvest of herbs, vegetables and so many different fruits. I learned the art of growing, propagating and harvesting many types of useful plants working with my mom and dad, Louie and Virginia Saso
Herb gardening and herbal wreath crafting are my serious joys in these beautiful Sierra foothills. Check out my herbgrowing page. Click here: Herb growing
