Spiral Herb Garden

How to make a spiral herb garden:

You'll need some rocks or bricks. In our case we used rocks taken from a nearby river.

Pick a spot for your spiral herb garden. It should receive at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Draw a spiral using a watering can. That's where we'll lay our first layer of stones.

Dig around the area where the first layer of stones will be set. This will make your spiral garden stable.

Set the stones like so. Then fill the inside with rich soil.

Add the second layer of stones, starting from the middle part of the spiral garden up to the center. Again, fill it with rich soil.

Add the third layer of stones only at the center part of the spiral garden. Then add some sand or pebbles inside the middle part, this will improve drainage.

Dig a pond on the lowest part of the spiral garden. This is where you'll place water loving plants.

Make sure that the pond is the lowest part of your spiral garden and the center is the highest part. Plant drain-loving plants at the center (highest part) and damp-loving herbs at the lower parts.

We will keep you updated on this project. Visit us next time...
