People have grown herbs for their culinary and healing properties for centuries. Today, herbs are as popular as ever!

Whether you want to grow a kitchen herb garden or just for healthier eating, there are countless herbs you can grow in your backyard. Fresh herbs make recipes taste even better and are great to have around for soups, salads, and stews.

Are you thinking of growing an herb garden? Why not learn how to make this DIY spiral herb garden!

It is a bed design perfect for planting herbs or plants that have various growing conditions. Those that prefer dry environment could be put on top of the spiral while those who need moisture would go at the bottom. Strategically positioning your plants depending on cardinal direction would also maximize the benefits of this garden. If a certain plant prefers minimal sun exposure, then you could put it on the north side where there’s less sunlight.
