Herb Gardens-Pure Pleasure~
Two of the greatest joys in my life are watching my herb gardens and ny grandsons grow. The two together is nothing short of amazing !
Herb gardens can be any size, shape and/or design that you are attracted to.
Herb gardens are readily changeable, if you plant thyme in this spot and next year you would rather have sage in this same spot, just dig it up and replant in another location. Seldom do you lose herb plants from transplanting.
They are so anxious to grow and please us they just put down roots wherever we wish to place them.
They are very neighborly, the closer the better with many species.
Herbs love to be in the spotlight, just add a few special garden fixtures and you will soon have a touring location that will be the talk of the town.
Birds, bees, butterfly's, and other interesting and beautiful creatures will add to the show on any given day.
Herbs love to be snipped on a regular basis, even if you don't have use for all the cuttings, just allow them to fall to the ground and presto...they will add rich and healthy compost to the soil for the continued growth of their fellow plants.
Herbs make a lovely bouquet for the summer table, and the extra benefit is the aroma they will waft throughout the entire house.
Small, large, formal or a crazy and wild mix-an herb garden is one of the greatest pleasures one can experience on a daily basis.
Happy herb gardening~
