Plant your own herb garden and enjoy fresh herbs all summer long!
Our herb garden this year consists of rosemary, sage, thyme, sweet basil, spicy globe basil, oregano, dill, parsley, cilantro, marjoram, and chives. I threw in some jalapeno peppers seeds, green onion seeds, and some larger onion sets to round things off. We will not add the plastic edge around the herb garden this year because I am planning on changing its shape and size next year. It will go from being a kidney shape with a casual planting arrangement to a more formal English herb garden with symmetry and a walkway such as the ones featured here… plan 1, plan 2, plan 3.
The steps for making this garden are the same as the flower garden except to keep the lawn at bay we cut a trench around the bed instead of adding an edger. This is an acceptable alternative to the edge however it demands more work to maintain. We will mulch the herb garden after the onions and peppers seeds come up.
