Herb Garden Design Mistakes

Many herbs are known for their companion plant qualities. They help improve the soil, the environment, and of course the beauty of the surrounding plants.

However, this is not the case for all herbs. Some herbs actually harm the growth and vigor of certain neighbors, including greens and other herbs.


Anise, while wonderful for many things, is not a good companion for carrots. Don't plant this naturally sweet herb anywhere near your carrot patch, and you'll be safe. However, anise is a good companion plant for beans and coriander.


Chives grow well with just about anything. Grapes, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, cabbage, eggplant, kohlrabi, mustard, bell peppers, potatoes, rhubarb, roses, squash, and strawberries grow best around chives.

However, asparagus, beans, peas, and spinach are more difficult to grow when planted alongside chives.


Coriander grows so well that if you blink, you can start planting and start taking over the garden. Try to keep it contained and avoid growing near fennel, which is a poor plant for most herbs.


Dill is another easy-to-grow herb and certainly eye-catching. Dill is a poor plant that accompanies angelica, cabbage, cumin, bell peppers, and bell peppers, eggplant, fennel, lavender, and potatoes. It is also a particularly bad companion for carrots - the two plants are closely related and can cross-pollinate.


Fennel is a poor plant for most herbs and vegetables. Although it can grow close to dill, the two plants tend to cross-pollinate. As a result, it is generally better to grow fennel separately; keeping it in a container avoids possible negative results.


In the modern herb garden, rue is used as an ornamental herb. It has a beautiful accent planting and has a rich history in folk medicine. Don't plant rue near basil or sage to avoid inhibiting the growth of both.


Sage deserves its space in the herb garden. It is delicious and easy to grow. Sage works well with many herbs, but avoid planting alongside onions.


Tansy is a must for the herb garden. The bright flowers, the buds, are an attractive addition to your landscape. Just don't plant Tansy alongside your delicious sprouts, or you'll be disappointed.


Absinthe can no longer be used as a natural dewormer, but it still serves as ornamental bedding. As it contains a large amount of wormwood, it is toxic to other plants.

When it rains, the water will carry this substance to the ground and will inhibit the growth of anything that grows nearby. Enjoy absinthe in a place that would not otherwise be planted.


So much good comes from a delicious garlic plant that we can forget that it doesn't grow very close to everything. When planting garlic, avoid planting alongside beans or peas. Garlic will inhibit the growth of both crops.

How to Design Your Garden for Best Outcomes

It can be helpful to draw your garden space and then cut out pieces of paper with each herb written on them. You can then move the strips of paper around until you find a setting that works for all of your crops.
