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.
