In a large garden the ideal way to make a herb garden would be to make aof little beds designed on decorative lines with perhaps a sundial and seat. Such a garden could well be made near the kitchen quarters, particularly in any household where domestic help is employed. If so designed as to give privacy, and furnished as suggested with a seat, the herb garden would make an ideal summer resting-place for the staff.
Herb gardens are naturally suggestive of mediaeval days, and it is for this reason that a sundial, or other old-fashioned ornament seems appropriate in the design. The herbs grown would, in such a case, be roughly divided into two classes. Some for instance, Marjoram,and Sage would be of permanent character and these would be used in key positions. Others, such as Parsley, Pot Marigolds, Angelica and Summer Savoury would be of ephemeral character, and sown each year afresh. The following herbs are suitable for inclusion in a small herb garden: Angelica, Balm, Borage, , Chervil, Chives, Clary, Fennel, Horehound, Pot Marigold, Pot Marjoram, Mint, Parsley, , Sage, Sorrell, Summer Savoury and Winter Savoury, Sweet Marjoram, Sweet Basil, Tarragon, Thyme.
