The Edible Garden
MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE
Every day we hear of the many health & environmental benefits of growing our own food. So, in this small space we have endeavoured to create a simple & small food garden that could fit into most back yards, or even front yards.
Here we have used old, discarded orchard picking boxes and a few pots as an easy & inexpensive way to start a food garden. The fence has been constructed from old reclaimed fence palings and handsome french shutters from Lilies on Brougham.
Most gardens have some form of boundary fences & walls that provide the ideal space to establish a few espaliered fruit trees or vines. Here we have planted Nashi Pears and various citrus as espaliers.
A garden is not complete without a Lemon tree and here we have also added Lime, Cumquat, Fig, Pomegranate, Loquat, Persimmon & Feijoa and an abundance of various herbs & vegetables with a few cut flowers.
