Herb Garden – Before and After

Ok, if you think creating, designing, planting and caring for a herb garden is hard, PLEASE take a look at the photos below. Assuming you have herbs that are suitable to your environment, you should be fine. Now, by “suitable” I mean, there’s probably a slim chance that you’ll get some Basil herbs growing in Antarctica. ;-)

Here is what the herb garden looked like JUST before completion:

Here is what the herb garden looks like after 6 months of growth:

    I believe you live in the desert SW. I live in New Mexico but at a high altitude. I don’t think basil would survive my winter where it gets below zero. If I bring it indoors it should survive shouldn’t it? Thank you, Dale

    Hi Dale. I don’t live in the desert (perhaps I got my rating wrong)… I have a perennial basil, and it seems REALLY sturdy. Out temperatures get to around 4 degress above 0 (Celsius) in winter, and my basil doesn’t even seem to be phased.

    Looks nice. :) Did you use the stepping stones for aesthetics or also to inhibit the plant from growing outside of the boundary?

    Thanks. And, the stepping stones are for a little bit of both. I wanted boundaries for each herb, almost like “a pot in the ground”, but they had to look good :)
