Herb Garden

Posted by cahnrs.webteam | December 20, 2013


  • 75-100 varieties of herbs
  • Raised beds which are easily accessed and help contain invasive weeds

Take an audio tour:


The Herb Garden was one of the first to be planted in the Demonstration Garden. It was refurbished in 2008.

The designers chose to use raised bed planters in order to:

  • More easily amend soil
  • Provide good drainage
  • Prevent aggressive herbs from growing into other plants

Herbs have a variety of uses including as culinary seasoning, decoration, medicine, and insect repellant.

Do you know the difference between an herb and a spice?  Spices are seasonings that come from fruits, roots, bark, buds and seeds of plants. Herbs are the fragrant leaves of annual and perennial plants.

This garden has drip irrigation which conserves water and decreases weed germination.
