The Q&A Archives: Knot Garden Plants

Question: We would like to plant a knot garden and noticed a nice plan in an old better homes and gardens gardening magazine with plants from Burpee. Do you still sell these plants? They are coreopsis Moonbeam, lavender Lady, thyme Golden Lemon, basil Osmin Purple and Dianthus Helen. Thanks for any information.

Answer: The current Burpee catalog lists the plants you mention. Order online at Just a suggestion -there are dozens of herbs and perennial plants that you can substitute for those you've listed. Look for low-growing, bushy plants with interesting foliage and/or flowers for a custom-made knot garden.
