Knot Garden artwork imageThe centerpiece of the Western Reserve Herb Society Herb Garden is the Knot Garden. It contains an intricate ribbon of traditional gray and green herbs winding around five millstones. The allure of the Knot Garden is dependent on the foliage, color, texture and shape of the selected plants. These plants are kept closely clipped to maintain the historically significant design of this garden.

Knot gardens were immensely popular during the Elizabethan era, but their intrigue diminished with the introduction of colorful flowering plants.
