The Herb Garden at Heathcote Botanical Gardens was started by the Heathcote Herb Society in 1994 after an herb gardening workshop brought together a diverse group of herb lovers. Heathcote’s Gardener, Miriam Charles, was a founding member of the Herb Society. She continues to search out rare and unusual herbs and starts many of them from seed. Miriam’s particular interest is in Salvias, and you will find many lovely specimens in the Herb Garden and in Heathcote’s Color Beds.
