Perennial Herb Garden


My front garden consists of two strips either side of a gravel driveway. One side is currently planted with a mixture of herbs and alpines, most of which are overgrown. The other side is also overgrown with some bushy plants that I’m not overly keen on.

We have decided to take out all the overgrown plants and I will be replacing them with perennial herbs.

My current collection of herbs lives in terracotta pots in my back garden. The annuals seem to be happy with this arrangement but the perennials aren’t flourishing. I moved a sage from it’s pot to a spot in the border last autumn and it likes it much better in the ground.

The photo shows the tray of herbs that I bought at the garden centre today that are ready to go in the front garden. They will be joined by some others I am growing from seed, and the ones that are unhappy in their pots out the back. I will post before and after pictures when I’ve got the old plants out and the new plants in.
