This wreath displays the versatility and variety of thymes, as well as a sprinkling of oregano. This living wreath was created by our friends at Red Cedar Gardens. Wreaths and other sculpted shapes for the garden, made with a growing medium such as sphagnum moss, can be found at many garden centers. Once you have them at home they ready to be planted. Thyme works particularly well for this kind of wreath because it is fragrant, trailing and dainty. Follow these easy steps and you are on your way to having a beautiful living wreath!
- Simply plant 5 to 6 herbs starters in a sphagnum filled, wire wreath frame.
- Every couple of days take it down, lay it on the lawn and soak it with the hose.
- Allow the wreath to sit for a few minutes to absorb and drain any excess water.
- As it fills out you may need to cut it back to keep it from becoming overgrown.
It’s so easy and beautiful as that! Try your hand at using a varied assortment of herbs to create your own version and send us a photo! We’d love to see your ideas.
