Home Gardens

I am passionate about gardening, I'm certainly not a Monty Don,how about you?...any pictures of your gardens, would be much appreciated, or tell us what your garden looks like,....also veg gardening in tubs,i have a decked area,i dont think i can put raised beds,with bottoms on it,as it may rot the decking,any ideas?

Re: Home Gardens

Mine looks like the jungle at the moment as we have been away and I have forgotten what I have planted .For your deck don't you get one of those raised planters and put a long tray underneath it when you water ?

Re: Home Gardens

Our present home has a much smaller garden than our previous property, thank goodness. There is no lawn, which is a big plus as far as we are concerned.


Here are a couple of photos.

Re: Home Gardens

These planters came with black plastic liners. Any water that does get through to the decking just sort of runs off anyway after a time.

Ha yes. That pic was taken just after I had laid the decking. It's not quite so immaculate now and will need re-staining soon. The planters were just wooden to start with and I painted them using garden paint. So far, they have lasted well.
