She also has herb garden: lavender, thyme, Rosemary, and 3 types of parsley, 2 types of basil Italian and Thai , pineapple thyme, cilantro, oregano and a few that I m forgetting. This has been her passion for years. And in addition to her vegetable gardens she has the most beautiful flower gardens surrounding the house. However, in the past few years she has not been able to enjoy gardening do to a severe back injury. Could you please help me? I want to help her build a vertical garden and or a raised garden to allow her to continue her passion during her golden years.
