Naturalist Lets his Plants, Like his Interests, Intertwine

"My studies converge so why not the plants?"

September 4, 1938

On this day, naturalist Charles Joseph Sauriol wrote in his journal about a common occurrence in gardens: plants growing together.

He wrote:

I set out plantations of Thyme, Rosemary, Tarragon, Mint, Caraway, in the Wild Flower garden which now becomes a herb garden as well.

This is my answer to keeping the weeds down….

My studies converge so why not the plants?
