How To Build A Herb Spiral

spiral-herb

These days, I saw that many people who seemed to be interested in herb spirals, so, if done properly, they need little maintenance and can keep the herbs all around the year. Basically, the idea behind them is to get in a confined area as many different herbs as possible. The spiral and the subsequent height differences mean that you create a number of different environmental conditions which wouldn’t normally be possible in a small space. The small area also means that they are ideal for a little garden, therefore harvesting and watering is easy. How it works? Start from a spiral bed in which to plant, this is held together with a structure made of rock, brick or anything that can really absorb the heat of the sun during the day which in turn heats the soil. I searched some tutorials of “how to build”, and I selected more detailed one to show you. See below a video about “how to build” a herb spiral with rocks, straw, soil, herbs, and water.

    How about a PDF for those of us who can’t download a video? My device is ancient & barely has a data signal. If I try to download a video, all it does is buffer, endlessly. Thanks.

    I love the idea but the image of the plants arrangement is cut so it is hard to tell which are the plants on the right. I think the order is very important because of the watering needs of the plants and the slanted shape of the spiral which will give less water to the top ones and more to the bottom ones. Can someone tell me which plants they are?
    Lovely idea, thank you for sharing

    How would you get to the top toward the center to harvest?

    The wire spiral garden has been making the rounds on FB for the last couple of years. Unfortunately, no one seems to be able to find the instructions anywhere.

    Please advise. Would love to make this type of garden but don’t want to have to guess on the construction.

    Thank you!

    This sounds fabulous. Only I live in an apt. So I could probably grow these in separate planters.
