Many of us suffer from minor ailments that can be treated with herbal teas. Whether we are coping with stress, fighting a cold or need help getting to sleep at night, herbs can help us meet our health needs. With these five garden plans, herbs will not only allow you to enjoy gardening, but also will be a ready source of natural medicine whenever you need them.

Tea gardens are both beautiful and functional. The mingling scents and blending colors are wonderful sources of pleasure. Try pulling up a chair and drinking herbal teas in your garden and you’ll have a delightful experience. These specialty gardens require a chunk of garden land, but don’t despair if you don’t have much space; you can still select a few of the recommended herbs and plant them in containers. There are many ways to grow herbs we need while creating an appealing garden design, so let your imagination run wild as you customize this garden plan to your own space.
