Our herb garden in Spring

Posted on

In early Spring 2009, we established our herb garden. A year on, some herbs have really thrived, while others have been less productive.

We’ve had most success with our marjoram, lemon thyme, chives and flat-leaf parsley. All have grown vigorously and remained disease-free. We’ve only had one plant that didn’t make it — the French lavender — I presume due to Sydney’s humidity.

The other plants in the garden have been reasonably healthy throughout most of the year. In particular, the borage has improved now that it has been getting more water from the drip-feeder (it’s a water-hungry plant).

    It makes a very pretty garden!
    I have some ferociously abundant oregano if you ever want a new oregano plant.

      Yes, we’d happily take some oregano! (I have plenty of space at the back now to cover.)
