Learn how to design beautiful, fragrant and useful herbs into your existing landscapes or new herbal spaces. Herbalist and designer Diane Lewis will discuss history, design basics and planning, the roles different herbs play in the landscape, how to select the right herbs for specific spaces, compatible hardscape elements such as paths and boulders, and theme gardens. You will design your herb garden on graph paper and take a short tour of the herb gardens and other notable garden spaces at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. A $5 supply fee payable to the instructor covers materials, herbal snacks & beverage and recipes. Admission into the Garden included in the cost of tuition. No discount.
