|Herb Garden Raised Beds - April 2013|
Barbara Petrucci has plans for the Fragrance garden that include a Zéphirine Drouhin climbing rose on a wrought iron obelisk surrounded by lavender and lemon thyme edging. In the back of the garden, Jean Schlecht is planning a separate bed with a variety of mints.

Two gardens straddling the center bed will be a Dye garden with plants used to dye materials and a Craft garden featuring plants with flowers and foliage used for craft projects. I am overseeing these two gardens and will post a separate post on this blog about those plants.

Many plants are from the previous herb garden, cared for by Karen Brown and held over for our use. Some plants are being shared from other demo and Master Gardeners’ own gardens.
In addition, the garden will be home to a bluebird house and two wood slat benches rescued from the barn and refurbished.
Come by in a few weeks, sit awhile. Relax, enjoy the s-l-o-w process of the beds taking shape.
