The Picket Fence Herb Bed displays herbs and annual flowers. This display bed surrounds the Vegetable Bed located west of the Swine Barn on the Fairgrounds. The purpose of the bed is to acquaint the public with the herbs and annual flower varieties suited for gardens in Hamilton County.

History of Committee

The outside of the Vegetable bed was a place for some of the extra AAS Flower beds in the past, but since about 2005 the outside of the Vegetable bed is now used for Herbs and some other flowers.  

As of 2021, there are some new features!  There is our Edible flower,  Culinary bed (with 12 types of basil, Asian and Mediterranean herbs), Sensory Bed (with so many colorful and fragrant herbs), and our Tea Garden. We also have added signage and labels for all of the herbs and some of their uses.
