The Aromatherapy Garden
The first step in designing an aromatherapy garden is to create a sense of place, an outdoor garden room.
Using gravel, flagstones or un-mortared brick on a footpath or patio allows plenty of space to plant low-growing herbs in the cracks, which lets you enjoy their fragrances whenever you step on them. Some that are especially suited for aroma gardens are pennyroyal, Roman chamomile, and caraway thyme.
Garden beds that curve around the edges of the patio can soften its lines and create a feeling of depth at the back of the garden. Place taller plants toward the rear corners, with progressively shorter ones toward the center. Let colors and textures play off each other in pleasing ways, but be sure to site the plants you use often where you can get at them easily.
Also consider the way the fragrances will mingle in the air. Your aroma garden can have a combination of strong, sweet smells such as those of gardenia and jasmine can be overpowering, so space these plants some distance apart. Planting in containers enables you to have tender, fragrant plants such as Thyme, Rosemary, Lemon Verbena, and Lavender.
