rosemary mini-christmas tree
I finally have my herb garden site. My wonderful husband yanked out our eyesore of a yucca in the front yard and the giant overgrown sage so that I would have a nice herb garden, about 20 feet by 4 feet in size, a pretty oval with a brick border.
Since we have been de-homed by a chimney fire (last week our house caught fire and is going to have to be partially demolished) we are staying in a 5th wheel RV for the holidays. I purchased a rosemary topiary tree and plan to plant it in my herb garden after the holidays. Question is, can I keep it small and nicely shaped? I don't want anymore overgrown bushes in this garden. No more than 3 feet and nicely trimmed. I plan to plant one dwarf fruit tree, preferably a low-chill variety of peach and other than that, it will be well behaved herbs with lots of culinary uses, fragrance and color.
Intermingled will be edible flowers.
I will be making my list of annuals, cool/warm seasons, and perinneals. I'm going to have about 20 varieties of basil and lots of thyme, oregano and marjoram this year! I'm hoping to have a freezer full of pesto to go with all the tomatoes I'm planting!
