SPICE CLUB: USEFUL CAN BE BEAUTIFUL!
The old tradition of creating a garden in which spicy aromatic herbs reign is coming into fashion again. So I also wanted to arrange such a fragrant corner on my site.
She created her spice bed according to the principle “dry stream". First, she outlined the shape of the future composition, selected stones in size and color, with which she laid out the banks of the decorative source. Then I bought plants. I decided on a rather unusual combination - spices and medicinal plants with decorative grasses and flowering perennials (perennial aster, coreopsis, Siberian iris, feathery carnation). It turned out very colorful!
In the spring, in May, she planted spicy herbs in the bed of the impromptu brook and "hooked" other residents to them according to the plan. She watered and mulched the soil with small white stones. Watered moderately throughout the season. There was no need to fight diseases and pests.
This bright green bush with carved leaves will serve as a great backdrop for flowering plants. It hibernates in the open field, and in spring it withstands small frosts without damage. Plants of varieties Variegated and Pure gold are best suited for creating compositions.
I have several varieties of it: ordinary, creeping, lemon-smelling, Dagestan. It looks good not only on alpine slides, but also in mixborders or stone gardens, as well as green edging borders of paths and flower beds.
It is now very popular as an ornamental plant in natural style gardens. I planted a racemesse catnip of the Odeur Citron variety, which blooms for an incredibly long time - from May to July and after pruning again at the end of summer.

You can create your own miniature spice garden or medicinal garden, which will delight you with a pleasant aroma and an interesting look, in a container. In summer, it will turn green on the terrace, in the gazebo, summer kitchen or on the porch, and in winter, take it home to the windowsill.
