Spiral Herb Gardens
The Herb Spiral.
If you haven’t seen one yet you may be wondering, “What the heck is an herb spiral?”
It’s a type of herb garden that allows you to:
grow more plants in a smaller space
grow herbs according to their needs and in varying soil depths
raises many herbs to a level comfortable for those with disabilities to work with
Rather than explain what you can do within a herb spiral here are some photos for inspiration and links to learn how to build your own.
This pretty little brick herb spiral is from blogspot.bolandbol.
And this caged stone version is from Cara’s Ornamentals:
From Milkwood Permaculture, women constructing a brick herb spiral.
And yes, there is even a plastic version. I found this Exaco® Herb Spiral Raised Bed in the Sportman’s Guide catalog.
If your tastes run to the DIY versions you can try these PDFs to learn how to make your own!
