At some point in our lives, we’ve all needed something to help us sleep, so here is a garden of herbs designed to help achieve restful slumber. For most people, herbal sleep remedies are not habit forming and work gently without side effects or lingering grogginess.

The Sleepy Time Garden, with its long, flowing lines and sinuous curves, evokes feelings of peacefulness and calm. A tall linden tree towers over the woodruff planted in its shade. Chamomile, lemon verbena, and dill spread out beside and behind the tree, and a hops-covered triangular frame completes the taller side of this garden.
