Designed for a 4' x 4' raised bed frame, this garden is planted with easy-care perennials and some annuals. A magnet for bees and butterflies, our easy-care garden will season your dishes with a bounty of herbs including sage, rosemary, basil, lavender and chives. Oregano, parsley, thyme, calendula and nasturtium round out the plantings.
Knowing what to plant, when, and how much is difficult for even experienced gardeners. Our vegetable garden designs have been developed to guide gardeners of any experience level in turning their 4' x 4' raised beds (or multiples thereof) into productive, intensively planted gardens year-round.
Developed by a professional chef, our garden planting plans are based on easy, intuitive square foot gardening techniques, which divide your 4' x 4' square frame into 16 individual square feet and specify ideal spacing for each plant in the garden.
The plan is a full color, illustrated pdf document that tells you what herbs and flowers to plant, where to plant them and when, to maximize your garden's yield year-round. Planting and expected harvesting dates, plant height and space requirements and other valuable information are included. Also includes general organic and square foot gardening hints and tips to help you grow a healthy and productive garden.
The Herb and Edible Flower Garden is our easiest garden to grow, requiring only two plantings and no trellises or other vertical supports. Best of all, the garden will keep on giving - year after year.
Planting dates are in mid-May and early June, although these dates are flexible.
Includes as a bonus a section with general organic and square foot gardening hints and tips.
Note the plan is not suitable for conventional row gardens; it is developed for 4' square raised beds. It can be doubled - or two different plans can be implemented side by side - in a 4' x 8' raised garden bed.
