Definition of knot garden

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Zanymuse:

Usually done with herbs a knot garden is a formal arrangement of plantings done in a circular pattern. Plants are arranged in patterns that overlap each other causing the appearance of ropes being tied into knots. A knot garden requires a great deal of upkeep in order to retain its appearance but is well worth the effort for anyone who enjoys fresh herbs and formality in the garden.

OR..using the term a little less literally in a sentence...
The patch of weeds in the front bed is Knot Garden to most folks but it is to me!

Definition as written by Magpye:

A very carefully planned garden of small dwarf shrubs or even herbs. Planned in a pattern and kept in order by constant pruning and trimming.
