Spring is only a week away and to celebrate it’s arrival I’ve found these inspiring garden ideas. These ideas are mainly for folks that have limited garden space or just want to try something different.
How about using a hanging fruit basket as a hanging lettuce and herb garden? It’s especially great for keeping them safe from furry lettuce loving garden critters. I can also imagine strawberries would do well hanging from this basket. Photo from UK Telegraph.
Growing a garden in a pallet seem to be getting popular idea these days. Maybe it’s because we are downsizing more. I think it’s a great way to recycle old pallets and also very inexpensive. Imagine making a few of these and fill them with fast growing ivy and it could easily become a garden privacy screen. Photo from Fern Richardson who is the author of “Life on the Balcony”. Just because you have a balcony doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a garden.
Make the most of the sidings with a gutter garden. According to Gardenhacker.com, the idea is to use rain gutters in rows along the wood siding on the sunny side of the house. Photo by Suzanne Forsling.
