Cathleen Jensen: I like the look of old-fashioned cottage gardens and English gardens. We really like the idea of using edible and medicinal plants, so we have them mixed in with lots of native and traditional plants. We've opted for a lot of fragrant plants over flowering plants. We use our herbs that we grow when cooking and for teas.
Our favorite teas from the garden are lemon balm, basil, and mint. We also have chamomile, lavender, several different thymes, oregano, rosemary, and sage. We bring rose petals in for baths and to surround candles to add a natural fragrance.
