|Garden Show Northern Ireland Display Bed|
This little display of veg growing in little squares and rectangles caught my eye, firstly because I like the idea square foot gardening and I like the idea many gardeners have like Alys Fowler of growing closer together. It also looks neat and tidy, yet artistic and rather ornamental. There was a sign describing this little display, and it wasn't until I was going through my photos that I actually read it (below) - it's quite inspiring (pity I don't have the author).
Have a good weekend in the Garden!

I like the idea of growing things closer together. I can fit more in that way. Now if I ever grew plants in a design that looked that neat & tidy I would be too scared to pick as I would ruin the display. I'm not disciplined enough to have new plants ready to take over.ReplyDelete
What a great idea - I only wish my veg looked as neat as this.ReplyDelete
I smile. When I taught my literature class at the university, we discussed the modernist movement in literature, that the movement inspired change in everything from poetry to architecture. I never thought about growing vegetables. I love the look and for a small space square foot gardening serves a great purpose. We could probably grow more efficiently here by following some of the concepts.ReplyDelete
Good idea, I don't know how this would work on my garden. After first rain I would have rhombs and elipses instead of squares.ReplyDelete
The Mondrian-type modernism lends itself well to gardening, but I had to think of other modernists, such as Picasso....Wonder how a garden along his artistic designs would look? Probably curves instead of squares, for one thing. Interesting concept to design a garden around the modernist movement.ReplyDelete
That does look attractive.ReplyDelete
Those beds remind me of giant seed trays with plants waiting to be pricked out. I think it makes sense to grow some plants closer together than recommended, especially when space is at a premium. Some things require lots of space though, planting them closer together would mean smaller plants, or in some cases, the plants could fail altogether.ReplyDelete
It's a lovely idea...but when those plants grow into untidy big plants it will lose its sculptural quality!ReplyDelete
Some say that a garden is not only a part of the house, but a reflection of the owner’s personality. And for that garden, I can say that the owner must’ve been very organized. The plant's arrangement is well thought out, and the colors are complement each other. Many will surely consider this idea for their own garden. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
