The Nostimo Herb Garden

Out the front of our restaurant, all around the Nostimo sign is a herb garden. Mixed in with other greenery so you may not notice unless you’re looking there is an abundance of herbs.

We’re home to Greek basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano, cherry tomatoes, creeping thyme and creeping rosemary. And they’re most definitely not here just for decoration. Our chefs use these herbs in various dishes. They have recently been using a lot of our Greek basil as it’s been growing out of control. Greek basil is a great herb that will survive when it’s a little cooler but thrives in the warm weather that Queensland provides.

It took a while for these herbs to grow to the point they’re at now, but Spring made this garden really flourish. Thank you to Greater Brisbane Gardens for keeping our garden beautiful and thriving.
