Today let’s chat about green garden planning.
There’s snow on the ground here at the moment. In fact, just yesterday I was out building a snowman with my little one! However, it hasn’t stopped me from planning out our tiny garden.
Until recently the small space has been taken up with raised beds where we sometimes successfully (sometimes unsuccessfully!) grew a small number of veggies,. However, now we’ve got our allotment our garden can start to be utilised for things other than vegetables.
For my green garden, I’m thinking lots of wildflowers for the bees. I’m also thinking about a nice area to sit out in and relax, and somewhere to grow herbs. I’d like to keep the herbs close to hand so that I can pop out to cut them whilst cooking, rather than having to make a specific trip to the allotment.
I’m quite a fan of Pinterest. Somewhere I think it especially comes into its own is for collating ideas for projects like your garden.
I’ve put together an eco-friendly gardening board where I pin anything that I feel is inspiring or useful. Prior to having my Pinterest account, I would save web pages to my bookmarks folder. But then found I’d never look at them again as they’d get lost in the muddle of other bookmarks.
Great Green Garden Ideas
Now I can easily find good ideas such as this recycled pallet planter that I’d love to attach to our shed to save space:
Or this great idea of growing seeds in eggshells instead of plastic containers:
In fact, I’ve got a whole board of green garden ideas you can follow! You can find it below:
