Lower-growing plants up to about 12 inches tall can line the edge of your herb garden. You can use a dwarf boxwood or other small plants with tidy growth habits -- such as 'Spicy Globe' basil, curly parsley, 'Silver Mound' artemisia, Roman chamomile, thyme, lady's mantle, winter savory, betony (without the flowers), gray or green santolina (if clipped), alpine strawberries, dwarf sage, and woolly yarrow -- to form lines and curves at the edge of the garden. Stick with one or two kinds of herbs in the edging to give the garden a distinct form and a sense of unity. Best wishes with your herb garden!
