The Herb Garden lies adjacent to the Sunken Rose Garden, on the west side of Government House. Many of the herbs are grown for use in the Government House kitchen. A medlar tree and a quince tree, popular in traditional herb gardens, are also found. The centrepiece of the Herb Garden is a sundial supported by a carving of an orca, created by Salish carver Aubrey La Fortune. Andrew Yeoman of Ravenhill Herb Farms designed the garden, donated plants and advised the Friends of Government House Gardens Society on maintenance.
These photos show of the development of the Herb Garden and its growth over the years. This garden was built in the fall of 1998 and first planted in the spring of 1999.
