Now the lavender is over and the bags are not made! However I have harvested the thyme,oregano and marjoram. The basil is still going strong and makes a great sauce for the tomatoe salads when mushed with some olive oil and black pepper. This herb garden was a weed infested bit of broken tarmac when we arrived.To plant this area I imitated the way these plants grow in the wild with just a small hole,barely any earth and white limestone rocks instead of mulch. it attracts hummingbird hawk moths in particular.
