Melinda's Garden Moment-Using Space Wisely

Posted at 11:46 AM, May 14, 2019

Get the most beauty and edibility from every square inch of your garden or container. Use color and texture to create attractive edible displays. Fill every space by interplanting short season crops like radishes, beets and lettuce between long season crops like cabbage, peppers or tomatoes. Save space and increase the beauty by growing in wide rows or blocks. Fill edible and ornamental containers with colorful leaf lettuce, mustard and other greens and keep them producing with regular harvesting. Go vertical to save space, create a focal point and reduce the risk of disease.
