We got excited and took a trip to the nursery to buy a few herbs to enhance our herb spiral. These included mint, dill (an unusual variety that grows into a shrub), phak phai (an ingredient for the Thai dish laab), various kinds of basil, and even though they’re not herbs we snuck some strawberries in there too..
Here’s the strawberries being planted. We planted them between larger herbs to shade the strawberries (in temperate climates strawberries like full sun, but for the subtropics half sun is ideal).
The herb spiral really is a pleasure to look at and taste too of course. Anyone with an itty bitty space can make one. They are easy and cheap to make and so so rewarding afterwards!
