I'm Deserie, your Herbal Remedy Advisor, here today talking to you about herb garden plants and designs. There's basically no right or wrong way to plan a garden design. It's really based on your personal preferences. And if you're not into weeding, container gardens are probably a good choice for you. There are basically two different kinds of garden designs and those are informal and formal. A formal garden has a very precise pathways in designated areas for plants and it's typically done on a flat surface. And an informal garden has fewer divisions and the plants kind of blend into each other. Basically, you can just start off by listing the different herbs you want to include in your garden. After listing the herbs, you want to start researching and looking at the different characteristics of the plants. Things like soil requirements and growing conditions like how much sun, how much water did they need, type, typical pests that you may encounter. After you've created your list of herbs for your garden and you've researched the requirements for each plant, then you want to layout a design. You would start by beginning to create different circles in your layout representing the different plants. Your garden can also have a focal point such as a fountain or you can use a theme such as medicinal or culinary. Now, you're ready to begin planting and enjoying your garden. In this case, if you're doing a culinary garden, you'll be using it just about everyday in your cooking. Medicinal gardens, you can save the herbs and harvest them while they're in full bloom and sometimes in some cases, you can dry and freeze them. I'm Deserie, and this is herb garden plants and designs.
