More info about building an herb spiral here and here, and general permaculture design information, here.

The general idea is: plants that like it dry and hot near the top, moist and cooler near the bottom.  Sun lovers on the south facing side, shady plants on the north side.  Those that can tolerate getting roughed up on the windy side, those that can’t on the other.  Use stones or rocks to wrap the spiral; they get hot during the day and diffuse the heat at night, keeping your herbs toasty (almost) year round.
