Hi,
I have several perminate beds. My general herb garden, the mint patch and a strawberry patch. My herb garden receives less care or different care. Herbs do better with tough love. Tomorrow is a planting day. Finally!!!

A permanent bed, to my mind, is a one with perennial plants, (they grow year after year).

perminate beds

Post  Jola on 4/5/2010, 9:07 am

I know what is "permanent bed", but people are taking about "perminate bed", not "permanent".

As far as I know there is no such word as perminate in the English language. I was operating under the assumption that it was a typo.

Now "permanent" beds

Post  Jola on 4/5/2010, 12:48 pm

I thought that is was typo too, but since several people used the word "perminate" I assume that they would not repeat typo, and that it must had been some new word for a new type of gardening bed. Maybe it suppose to be "permeate"?
I'm glad that it was just a typo and I'm not missing new gardening word in English.

I have to admit that I, too, did not recognize the word. My apologies for not making the connection. It was too early on a Monday and I was only on my 1st cup of tea.

For those of you just joining this thread, the original poster edited his post to correct the spelling of permanent!

Asparagus bed

Post  SirTravers on 4/5/2010, 1:27 pm

I mentioned making up a bed to grow asparagus and I thought my wife was gonna tackle hug me. I think I could make up a full 2x8 or 4x4 bed just dedicated to the asparagus plants. Perhaps a few different varieties also. That stuff is like candy for my kids. They love the stuff!
