I have a little courtyard with walls on three sides (about 2 metres by three). It is semi-sunny, i.e. gets probably 3-4 hours of direct sun during the summer, and you enter through an archway. The only requirement is that it have a path running through it, to access a door in one of the walls.
I am removing the bricks currently covering it and turning it into a herb garden (veg will go elsewhere, in a sunnier location). So for all of you that have designed a herb garden from scratch, what advice would you give someone about to design and plant their own? There are just two of us at home, but we cook extensively with herbs (previously grown in pots).
