Garden Groupings

Charles Joseph Sauriol

On this day in 1938, Charles Joseph Sauriol wrote in his journal.
He wrote 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?"
