Secret Seven Herbs

As we pull together our sensory garden, we have selected seven plants and herbs that will serve not only to create an aromatic scent in the air but we can also use them in our cooking, and allow sensory exploration by touch and smell.

Grown in seven large pots these will grown quite happily for a couple of years when we will look to split them and create additional pots for the senses to enjoy.

Whether or not you’re a foodie who uses only fresh ingredients in the kitchen, or like us you are also using herbs in a sensory manner, these are which I feel you can not be without.

Rosemary, Sage, Oregano, Parsley, Thyme, Chive and Lavender.

All are sun loving plants with the exception of Parsley which needs partial shade and all will be happy in pots for many years, though you may find Parsley is best sown every year.

Creating the pots together is a fun activity and watch them grow, cut and eat will become quite an interactive treat.

  1. You are reminding me of the childrens TV program The Herbs, I shall now think of you as ‘Bay Leaf the Gardener’
    But thank goodness you don’t have ‘Dill the Dog’ ;-))

    1. haha! Now there’s an idea Les, a Dog to go with the cats :)) I remember that program too, though until now, had not thought of it – Thank you so much 🙂

  2. Great idea Paul. I haven’t tried any of the others, but lavender is very easy to grow from cuttings, maybe a few in Marc’s room could be beneficial?

    All the best

    1. Thank you so much Dougie, we do have a small bunch hanging in his – and other – rooms for this reason and a spray mist that helps him rest easier at night too 🙂
