New to Potagers- Any Tips? (pics)
Hello! I love coming on here and reading about the amazing and beautiful things that are being done in everyone's potagers! I decided to try my hand at a simple raised-bed garden this season, and will hopefully be able to learn and expand in the following years!
I did a little bit of research on companion planting, and have followed some of the basic pairings with my veggies and flowers... I have celebrity tomatoes planted with scarlet globe radishes, basil, Mexican marigolds, petunias, chives, and parsley in two squares. In the other two I have bush beans, eggplant, jalapeÃ±o peppers, dill, strawberries, beets, onions, and more marigolds. I tried to do chamomile from seed but was unsuccessful.
I would love to have more flowers (I have recently seeded some old-fashioned annuals that are little sprouts right now), and I think the design needs more height in the future.. maybe a trellis at the entrance with a climbing fruit or flowering plant? Also in the long-term plan is a potting shed that will be positioned towards the back right section of the property.
Any feedback, advice, or constructive criticism is welcome!
