Question by betty: A shelter that I volunteer at, asked me to start up a herb/flower garden?
The space is very small (3 feet by 15 feet), but I would like to have herbs / flowers that will grow at different times so it will always be populated. What herbs and flowers go together and won’t overrun the small area? The shelter is located in Southern California (Los Angeles)
Answer by Rocky
Here’s a list of herbs/flowers that are good for small areas and probably good for your climate, too: lavender, rosemary, aloe, catnip, basil, thyme, violet, oregano, poppies and mint. Mint and violet do have a tendency to spread though, but they look and smell nice, so you might want to put them in anyway.
