Please forgive me for using my blog as an extension of my discoveries and education, but I thought that others may also benefit from my learning journey. So today I have been sitting making a plan for our garden so that Superman and kids can do a lot of the work while I am in the UK next month. (They offered!)
We have decided that the circular beds which I like so much will not work for our space so we will have to go with more rectangular shapes but will build a chook box to fit over the beds for them to clean out when the time is right.
But in my searching around for information on how to make this area a buzzing ecosystem instead of just a vegetable garden I came across these two videos on creating a herb spiral. It makes so much sense to make a herb garden like this and I will definately incorporate this into our plan.
No need to watch the first video all the way to the end (and the music is rather irratating!) but using straw as a bedding material is a great idea...the second video shows a mature herb spiral...just wonderful!
Have any of my readers incorporated a spiral in their gardens? Please let me know!
