Herb Garden

Adding herbs to our garden!

This laundry trough has been around since I bought the house in the early 1990s. It has been moved from around the side of the house to the backyard during the renovation period. Only now, have we made use of it! It will be our new herb garden filled with basil, oregano, mint, coriander, rosemary, tarragon and cherry tomatoes.

We have another laundry trough still around the side of the house which will be moved once we know how to! They are heavy and awkward so we need to be careful not to do an injury!! It too, will then be parked beside our gazebo to make up another herb garden.


  1. Nice! I've just planted some herb seedlings too. My mother has the same trough in her backyard - I still remember when it was in the laundry! By the way, the rosemary will take over that space very soon. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks Tania. Will watch that rosemary! Don't want her to take over the whole trough!!
