This aromatic summer garden features classic southern French herbs, vegetables and flowers - even over-wintering garlic and onions to harvest next spring. Packed with sweet peppers, tomatoes, eggplant and green beans, as well as the most important Provençal herbs: thyme, rosemary and fragrant lavender. A cheerful sunflower rounds out the mix.
Knowing what to plant, when, and how much is difficult even for 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 vegetables, 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 Southern French (Provençal) Garden requires a cage, ladder or other supports for the tomato and for the eggplant. Planting dates range from May until October, providing you with an almost year-round harvest in this productive little garden.
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. Or, feel free to visit our website to view other size options.
