Do you like originality? I am partial to it, so don't expect my herb garden ideas or the majority of them to be cookie cutters because many stem from my own quirky imagination. I promise not to get too funky here, but if they tickle your fancy then I'm happy!

Shovel up the coloured gravel! It looks stunning when you play about with a few colours. The bags are labelled decorative stone pot toppers. A nice mix of these around rocks is another herb garden idea that I like. Polished stones from a craft shop look good too but can be a bit costly.
You might be thinking arches are for large gardens. Not so! They serve 3 purposes in the garden.
