The advantage to having it in a corridor/pathway is mostly convenience. It's closer to the house and easier to reach the plants than my other plan would have been. The disadvantage is probably that it won't have the formal look. That's OK since it's more practical and I like things a little less formal anyway!
Here is the key for the herb garden:
- Stepping Stones: the stones will be recessed into the turf and planted with a low growing stepable ground cover like thyme.
- Butterfly Bushes: I have several cuttings of butterfly bush that I started in the fall.
- Rosemary: I have four cuttings that are rooted and need to get two more.
- Purple Leaf Basil
- Miscellaneous Herbs: Italian parsley, chives, mint (in pots!), Thyme, and cilantro
- Italian Basil
