  • Bezzie's Pot garden

    Pot garden

    I prefer the term “pot” garden as it’s not really a patio or balcony garden. I had a small sampling of plants in pots on a large landing on our back steps.

    a favorite spot right off the back patio. It is full sun, with a little shade in areas (like under the snakebark maple tree). It is all in raised beds which I have completely renovated since moving in last year. It gets moderate irrigation̷...

    A portion of our patio on a hot August night. Ah… Venice California, mild ocean breezes, fragrant jasmine, great friends, Jim Morrison… and police helicopters overhead at 3 AM. Lo que no me mata me hace más fuerte. Grow-your-own greyh...

    Perennial Flower/Side garden

    This is my little peaceful spot that is supposed to look more like a park or cottage garden than a shrubby bit of suburbia. I have a bench for reading, bird feeders and bird baths, lots of perennial flowers and vines, an arbor that will hopefully...

    How much space I have here? I think it is no more than 6 m2… And I never use the frontdoor for myself, only for formal guests. All good friends and neighbours just hop in through the backdoor. And there’s only sun in the morning, so th...

    Patch of Green garden Archived

    This garden thrived in a 30 sq ft area with a balcony porch partially hanging over it and a Rose of Sharon bush blocking those that would trample it as well as the sun. It got partial sun in the day and still we saw a bounty. But we no longer live...

    this plot has full sun now as we’ve taken down the big fence that used to run alongside it. Got misuna and some other lettuce in there just now plus some pak choi, swiss chard and spinach. Tomatoes didn’t do too well here this year ...
