How to keep herb garden from washing away
I'm new to this whole gardening thing. ;-) Just planted my first little herb garden in a small sunny spot of my back yard (small plants, not from seed). But hardly had I finished with a great sense of accomplishment than the thought came to me: if we get one of those heavy Spring rains like we always do here in Alabama, this whole thing is going to wash away.
I've got a 3-inch high fiber-edging material around it but that's not enough when we get our heavy rains. Wondering if anyone has suggestions for some kind of tent/covering for when the rains come.
