I’m definitely opting for a place of rest and relaxation. And obviously an abundant harvest. So we’ll go informal. 3×3 to start is good. I’m trying too hard to get the sketch right, its very frustrating but I’m leaving it rough outlined wit a precise grid else I’ll never complete this unit

I had to settle for the informal herb garden. I have the veggie patch in the
backyard and a patch between the flowers in the front garden. I have started my herbs and veggies end of August, beginning Sept. Have already harvested my first batches of veggies and I am constantly harvesting from quite a few of my own herb. Limited space in my garden is the reason for starting to plant in pots and next is a raised herb garden. Want to try new herbs in the raised boxes

I will definitely have an informal garden. I am a cottage gardener and informal will go well with other gardens. Also, I am too perfectionist to have a formal garden needing constant tending.
I already have herbs growing around my property and actually enjoy taking a walk through the yard to gather what I need. My new garden under the kitchen window will include new herbs that i have not yet grown.

Informal layout works best for me due to space. I’ve learnt that you should have a walking space. The garden must be within reach and visible. Sunlight is very important. The fragrance when close to the house and windows

Currently have a Informal garden layout at home. Slightly less sunny but herbs seem to be handling it pretty well.

My garden is currently 1×3 meters. Going to expand it by adding pots up the wall on the one side. This way the herbs will be away from the fence and the wild animals that sometimes come to visit looking for a snack!!! I prefer an informal garden, like mother nature plants 🙂

We are looking at building a greenhouse for our herbs

I prefer an informal setting because I suffered a pathological fracture doe to breast cancer. I’m not able to bend for a long time and I want to do the gardening myself. I am currently using 5 litre water bottles wherein i planted bell peppers, parsely and celery. The “pots” are currently placed close to my kitchen door making it accessible. I may have to move them to a more sunny position for the autumn

With the back yard being huge, I think informal to start with in the one corner and in the mean time, while my garden gets bigger I would like to start the formal garden in the center of the two informal gardens along the back wall.

I would love to have a herb garden outside, the bigger the better as to me that would mean bigger variety and i love having a variety. As for the layout i would definitely go for the formal layout, it gives you the opportunity to not only grow the herbs in an orderly way but it also allows you to get creative and design an almost piece of art at the same time.

It looks like informal for me, and a bit on the small side. The area I’m looking at is a passage that is 1.6m wide (and 3m long) with full all day sunlight (the passage from my kitchen door to the veggie garden in my yard). So I will pass it all the time, in order to check on progress and to keep my hand on it. Luckily no pets around in the yard. So it will be a raised bed (elevated on stilts about 45cm high). Length = 2.5m and width = 0.5m. Depth = 250mm.

Like I mentioned before. The 250mm depth is fine but if you can, increase it. Just 50mm will make a huge difference.

I look for the spot which I think my herb will be happy and plant it there. Sometimes I am wrong and have to replant. So, I tend to go with nature.

Informal layout suits me. That’s how nature is.

I like an informal pattern better. I live in a cottage so it suits my garden more. When it’s informal it looks more natural where as I find formal patterns look like they were just put there.

I think starting small is the best way to go for me. I like the idea of the informal design since that fits my personality. I can make an informal herb garden with my pots and jars, plus I have some stone benches and brick to use for a raised garden bed.
