Everything for the Gardener and their Garden

Creating a sensory garden

A sensory garden should be designed for maximum appeal to its audience. There are 5 senses so something for each

hearing, sight, touch, smell and taste

hearing – listening to wind chimes, or water or rustling leaves. Even the crunching of gravel underfoot can be heard.
sight – the easiest one I think – so many pretty plants to look at – foliage and all year round colour to consider though
touch – soft plants, spikey plants, scratchy plants (but consider some may cause irritation)
smell – herbs, lavender, roses,
taste – edible plants – tomatoes, herbs again, fruit and vegetables should all make a display for this section
