So I was reading a magazine while waiting for a flight recently and came across this great garden design! If you are having trouble thinking of where to plant your herbs, this could be a great start for you. Its a low-maintenance garden and a great way to let herbs reproduce and just grow. This design will let you have your herbs without such a hassle when in other beds. There wont be as much weeding or pruning that has to be done.
Lets go over a few of the plants. Dill is further in the back as it can grow to about 3 feet in height. Fennel is an amazing plant that can grow to 4 feet tall and that is the reason why it is in the back of the garden. In front of the fennel is Borage. This plant can also grow to about 3 feet tall but also produces edible flowers! Poppy is number 3 and grow to 2.5 feet tall. It is the poppy pod that follows the flower that has the culinary seed. Flax is a great little plant especially for the seed, which comes in a pod after the flowers as well. Flax seed has essential oils needed in your diet, this plant only gets to about 1.5 feet tall. Caraway is an amazing little plant that only gets about 2 feet tall. Every part of this plant is edible! Did you know that when harvested for its leaves its know as cilantro?? I sure didn’t! This flavorful herb gets to about 3 ft tall as well! Chervil only gets about 2 feet tall and the part that is most popular is its leaves. Calendula only reaches about 1.5 feet and when harvested only lasts about 1 year. Last but not least, chamomile. This lovely plant can help relax you in a tea and will reseed itself. This lovely plant can get to 2.5 feet tall!
Again, this is just one garden design of many. With the little bit of information and a small spot in your yard, this might be the herb garden design for you!
