2012 Garden Plan

Post  Rhianna78 on 2/14/2012, 12:36 pm

2012 Garden Plan

Drew up the plan for the garden. It will be a 3x6, with gutters attached as an herb garden. Guttering because it floods here at a minimum of 3 times a year so might as well keep the herbs up & out just like the TTG.

Any suggestions, imput, etc is greatly appreciated.

Rhianna,

it seems this link is to your FaceBook page and the access is limited. I was unable to see your plan.

I believe you could change the privacy setting on this one item to public so those of us that are not your "friends" can still see it.

I can see the layout, but not the abbreviations. Can you fill us in? Or scan it then repost?

Okay, 3rd time's the charm?? I hope. Sorry its scanned sideways, my scanner and I don't always see eye-to-eye.

The abbreviations are as follows:

Bo - Borage

Nas - Nasturtrium

Le - Lettuce

Ra - Radish

Pea - Peas

Po - Potato

Ok - Okra

Eg - Eggplant

Ca - Carrot

On - Onion

Pe - Pepper (Sweet Bell types)

T - Tomato

Ce - Celery

Sq - Squash (1st Summer, then Winter ones)

Me - Melon

Cu - Cucumber

Cab - Cabbage

Sp - Spinach

Br - Broccoli

The scale is 4cm = 1ft

Everything else should be readable but if not let me know. Smile

Thanks for bearing with me as I attempt to get this right.

I just lost my post to you! AARGH!

Go here (companion plants) and it will help you sort out what goes with what.

Your plans look good, but too crowded. I did the same thing, and had to rework my original plans. I love that you are interplanting.

Consider heights and form of plants row by row (and edging boxes). Put trellising plants together (toms, squash, melons, and maybe EP?).

Consider root depth for each square. Something deep with corners of something shallow works well. Broccoli and garlic but not broccoli and carrots.

Consider planting types together - it makes it easier for companion planting.

Wish I could give you more details ~
