Herb Garden

The Herb Garden is a script prop that can be placed inside a private property by its owner. Once placed, it cannot be moved again, so you need to be certain that it is in the correct room before placing it. Any alterations to the pot's description must be done before it is placed. When placed, the Herb Garden will appear in the "You also see" line. Moving it from that line and onto/under/behind another prop that already exists in the room requires a separate Property Change Voucher for "Move a Room Item".

Herb Gardens come with a preset list of five herbs, which are compatible with the cooking system. Anyone can cycle through and pick herbs from it. They work similarly to Foraged Item Props.

Vouchers for Herb Gardens are sold at The Roof Over in Ebon Gate.


Herb Gardens are created via a voucher/certificate. All alterations to the final herb garden's appearance must be done before the voucher is redeemed (placed) by the private property owner. Alterations can be done by most GALD merchants.

Plant 4: a thin leaf of silvery green sage
Plant 5: a sprig of long-leafed rosemary

These plants will be able to be PLUCKED from a silver-lipped blue glass jar.

It has a SHOW description of:
Surrounded by a silver ring, the remnant of a past preservation seal, the blue glass jar is pot-bellied and wide.  Rich, dark brown soil flecked with mica fills the container to about the halfway point, while fragrant herbs sprout from the top in leafy profusion.  A small placard hung from the neck denotes the varieties inside as basil, oregano, sage, rosemary, and thyme.

It has a LONG description of:
a silver-lipped blue-tinged glass jar teaming with herbs

Any willing merchant can work on this for you.  It must always be some kind of flowering box.  Examples: an herb box, an herb-filled pot, a flowerbox, etc.

All culinary items must exist in the foraging system.  It is intended for herbs.

You are welcome to modify how the herb looks provided you don't change the noun.  For example: some thyme can now be a fragrant sprig of thyme, a sprig of fresh basil can be a wide leaf of basil, etc.
