Culinary Herb Garden
See our spectacular herb garden located just outside of Villa de Flora, our Mediterranean-style buffet restaurant. You'll see 3 herb-growing methods you can use at home:
Container Gardening – Growing plants in containers allows you to bring outdoor herbs into your kitchen; basil, mint, sage, thyme and rosemary are ideal.
Raised-Bed Gardening – Raise the soil at least 6 inches off of the ground, contained within a frame. The soil warms more quickly when elevated, extending the growing season for colder climates. Gardeners can also compensate for poor soil quality and grow a greater variety of plants.
Using herbs as ornamentals – Many herbs offer decorative and medicinal benefits in addition to culinary uses: Aloe vera, for example, contains a gel that can relieve burns and help skin tissue heal. Enjoy a new selection of ornamental herbs each season.
