      Here in Georgia (US), I haven't been able to find it at any farmer's
      market or nursery. But believe it or not, I did find it on Ebay. See
      item #7762928898 Probably order some next week for my wife's Roman
      herb garden that she's trying to start.

      So far we have just a few common herbs...rosemary,thyme,mint,a couple
      of varieties of basil, lavender, sage, ..some others that I can't
      think of right now.
