A herbal spiral garden is both practical and attractive. The bricks that create the spiral shape retain the sun’s warmth and extend the growing season. Consequently, if you live in a very warm climate, your spiral herbal garden may require extra watering during the hottest months.
The main materials to use while constructing a herbal spiral garden includes cardboard, weed mat or gravel (these will kill weeds). It is recommended not to use carpet as it has chemicals treated in it that will leach in your garden into the soil. Others include long stake; organic matter such as mushrooms; compost; rock minerals and organic fertilizers; mulch; herbal seedlings; and pond materials.
It is advisable that this herbal spiral garden be built in a place which receives at least five full hours of the sun/day and it is close to the kitchen for easy access. Though a garden made in either direction is equally functional, it is interesting to note that spirals are typically made in the same direction that water flows down a drain. In the northern hemisphere, that direction is clockwise, and it is counter clockwise in the southern hemisphere.
To construct the herbal spiral garden, locate a flat sunny building site large enough to accommodate a 6 feet circle with at least 2 feet of space to walk around the outside of the circle; position a hose or string on the ground to make a spiral that is approximately 6 feet across; use a stick or a hoe to dig the space around the outside of the hose to define the spiral shape; stick bricks in an alternative pattern along the traced line beginning with the centre going out; the centre should be high so that it can be reached from the outside; it should have at least three tiers at the end of the day; shovel soil into the open space taking caution not to hit the breaks; add compost; plant herbs in your spiral; water the herbs thoroughly after planting. You now have your super herbal spiral garden.
