Meadow-effect long wispy Gaura creates a natural feel to a garden design and requires minimal garden services management. Gaura requires pruning between late winter and early spring to encourage long summer season white or pink flowering.
Herbs are attractive as well as aromatic and worthy of consideration for a low maintenance garden design. In addition, if you are providing a Chambre d’hote, bed and breakfast or une table d’hôte service, then the growing of fruit, vegetables and herbs will be important in order to cut cost and maximise your return.
Rosemary is another aromatic herb, late flowering, which has fragrant leaves and added to roasted vegetables and meat dishes. Rosemary’s light blue ground flowers may also be used to flavour custards and cream along with sugar. The herb requires low maintenance care and it is attractive to bees due to its great source of nectar. It has many benefits to offer to an income generating property.
Lavender although may not be of low maintenance, the herb is a good all year plant. The plant bears fragrant flowers, stems and leaves and is ideal for its fragrance in the guest bed linen.
