Herb Bed in the making

This bed faces South, so it has a wonderful sunny outlook. It has some Victoria Plum,a Green Gage and Damson espalliard trees against the wall.There are three climbing roses and a Black current and a Blackberry bush here too.The plums are fantastic and every year produce an abundance which some are often taken to make some jam,others are sold and most are munched.
At the top of this bed there planted is an Herb bed..but only small..This year we would like to plant a much larger one.After digging then rotavating and raking, I then took out a worn out gooseberry bush and replaced it with a pretty weeping cherry blossom.
 Next stop, some gigantic herbs..to be continued...
