Don't Get the Urge to Herbal

Raise up, raise up your herb garden! Actually, there are some herbs you may not want to include in your herb garden design if you're planning a raised vegetable garden. Herbs that thrive in shade won't necessarily thrive in a raised herb garden. Be cautious when selecting any of these plants for your vegetable garden design:

  • Angelica
  • Catnip
  • Lavender
  • Lemon Balm
  • Mint
  • Parsley
  • Tarragon
  • Lemon Verbena
  • Basil
  • Sorrel
  • Chervil
  • Tarragon
  • Sage
  • Chives

You want to uplift your herb garden and vegetable garden, but face up to the reality that some herbs prefer the dark side.
