If you’re like me, you probably thought there was only one type of herb garden, right? A garden with herbs- usually delicious ones like basil, dill, oregano, and cilantro for cooking. However, there are SO many more uses for herbs than just cooking! They can be medicinal, used for aromatherapy, made into tea, or even just look pretty for aesthetic purposes. Check out this awesome list by The Herbal Academy for totally fresh herb garden ideas + what to plant in them. Here are some I’m considering:
-Medicinal garden- plant lavender, St. John’s wort, chamomile, echinacea, ginger, catnip, and rosemary.
-Tea garden- mints, roses, raspberry, nettles, chamomile.
-Bee/Butterfly garden- bee balm, sage, lemon balm, calendula, fennel.
There are also ideas for a moonlight garden, a salad garden, a dyer’s garden, an insect-repelling garden, and of course, the classic culinary herb garden!
