Frederik Meijer Garden, A Cure For Spring Fever (4)

Most men and women dream of becoming able to wander out into the garden and pick their personal house grown produce to put on the table for teatime. Even with the addition of this little shed extension behind the garden shed not only is there still beneficial space for a compost region proper in the corner (provided a face lift with a couple of surplus pieces of decking), the water butt, car tyre planter and garden canes, but there is also space to conveniently shop the wheelbarrow and hose pipe when not in use.

Properly, what much better way to commence gardening than by employing your raised beds to concentrate on some quite productive salad crops such as lettuce, radish, spring onions, tomatoes and herbs, like bay trees, thyme and chives that are simple to grow and give guaranteed harvest results every single time… best scenario even if you are an skilled gardener!

But the story started at least a couple of years earlier, when my quite shade loving garden was taken away by the loss of 1 massive pine tree. Planting crops and in distinct the exact same vegetable on the identical plot of land, year soon after year, can encourage the development of pests and diseases, factors you certainly don’t want in your raised garden bed. I loved the garden the really feel of dirt on my hands and the smell of fresh turned earth. When garden centres offer a landscaping service, it is an best place to choose up used plastic plant pots which had been employed by the landscapers. I could write a book on what happened in my garden this year, and I just may.

Right after developing the garden shed the wedge of land behind it was largely occupied by a thick hedge and a loved ones of hedgehogs or rather they employed it as their nightly run to forage for food. This is not exactly how I wanted to open this blog, but it does lead into what being in the Garden has meant to me this year. Great tips, i wanted some containers for my kitchen garden.. quite valuable certainly!

And much more importantly for the hedgehogs, into my final garden landscaping styles I incorporated a hedgehog tunnel connecting the adjoining gardens which I am pleased to say they still use to this day on their nightly runs in search of food.
