Sunken Pot Herb Garden #garden #sunken #herb #pots #vegetables #border
Herb garden in sunken pots- that is a great idea and looks beautiful (doesn't let plants spred too far-great idea)
HERB GARDEN: Contain aggressive perennial herbs by planting them in buried pots. Now this is a cool idea!
Cool herb garden idea, buried pots surrounded by mulch. Would also work for any plant that's not winter hardy placed anywhere in the garden!
Creating a Buried Pot Garden Pot-in-pot makes so much sense for taking them out to winter them. You could probably use the water collecting trays up-side down on them to cover the holes. Plant rotation based on seasonality and or just mixing it up for fun, ie from herbs and vegetables to flower pots would be awesome. I wonder if this would be a good way to conserve water as well, you could probably work something out in the pot-in-pot for some type of water storage. Great idea.

4 Step Guide to Building a Herb Spiral #herbs #garden #guide
Spiral garden idea with bricks
Guide to Building a Herb Spiral: ****** Materials you’ll need Cardboard (without ink or tape), weed mat or gravel – optional but useful to kill weeds if building your spiral straight on top of lawn. (I avoid carpet because it’s likely been treated with chemicals that will leach into the soil as it breaks down). Alternatively, you may need a drill for drainage holes if building on concrete. Long stake. Secure a 1m length of string to the stake and tie at the other end with a lightweight stake, bamboo cane or chalk. Use this to draw a line on the ground to measure out the circle. Gather edging materials e.g. bricks, pavers, stones, rocks – choose long-lasting materials for a permanent structure. Organic matter such as mushroom compost, worm castings, lucerne, mulch, straw and garden soil to build fertility to feed your garden long term (quantity depends on diameter of your spiral). Compost (for planting your herbs into – preferably homemade so it will be full of living microorganisms or alternately, a certified organic compost). Rock minerals and organic fertiliser (to add nutrients to your soil). Mulch (whatever you have available) e.g. lucerne, sugarcane, baled grassy mulch hay, pea straw, grass clippings, leaves, etc. Herb seedlings; bay tree and vegetable seedlings if planting. (Optional) pond materials and irrigation fittings if including. Location Choose a spot that ideally receives 5 full hours sun/day and is close to your kitchen for easy access. Orientate your pond or bottom of the spiral on the southern side in the Southern Hemisphere and northern side in the Northern Hemisphere. When it comes to planting, this will allow you to position your plants according to their sun, shade and water requirements. Herb spiral with compass points. How to Build Your Spiral STEP 1: Measuring up – Have someone hold or bang the stake into the central point of the ground where you want to position your herb spiral. To determine the perimeter, stretch out the string attached to the centre stake to mark out your circle, drawing a line in the soil with the other stake or bamboo cane tied on the end of it (or use chalk if you are marking out a hard surface). An alternative method for marking out your spiral. The diameter averages between 1.5 – 2m (5 – 6.5 ft) or 750cm – 1m (2.5 – 3.25 ft) from the centre. Tip: If building straight on top of concrete, make sure you drill holes or have adequate drainage. STEP 2: Your base – if starting on lawn you will need to stop weeds from growing. Cardboard can be used for this purpose to sheet mulch and build the spiral on top. No light = no weeds! Some people use newspapers or thick phone books instead but I choose to avoid adding anything to my organic garden with inks that may be based on genetically modified soy beans. Cardboard edges need to be well overlapped to block all light... ***Cardboard is easily accessible for free from most businesses that pay to have it taken away and recycled + we can tread a little lighter on the planet at the same time!.. **Lay your weed mat or wet cardboard (soak with a hose or in a wheelbarrow) to cover the circle you have marked out. Cardboard will breakdown and add carbon to your soil and provides a food source for microorganisms. You may also choose to add some organic matter under this to accelerate breakdown of the cardboard such as chopped vegetable scraps and other green waste from your garden.... **The base for this site has been pegged out, a gravel base laid and pond positioned.... ====STEP 3: Construct the wall structure – Using your edging material of choice, start laying your bricks/rocks on the outer edge and working inwards to create a spiral shape, allowing about 0.5m (1.6 ft) width to plant into or adjust if making a smaller spiral.°°° ***To minimise your cost and time, use the dry stone wall method where rocks or bricks are laid on top of each other, overlapping for stability... **For a more formal look, use mortar or cement between your bricks or stones... ====Tip: Save your best looking materials for the outside ‘face’ and those that will not be seen on the inside of the spiral.... ***If using heavy rocks or stone, you may prefer to dig a shallow trench around the circumference of the circle and lay these into it on top of a layer of cardboard or weed mat to prevent weeds. If using the dry stone wall method, you may find it easier to add your organic materials as you go to provide support rather than adding these at the end for the mortar method.***... ****Once you have your basic shape laid out around the circumference, add a second tier of bricks, remembering the outside ‘wall’ of your spiral is lowest (e.g. 2 bricks high or perhaps 1-2 rocks depending on size – enough to retain your soil)..... ******Use more bricks or rocks to build the internal spiral walls, gradually increasing the height as you work your way into the centre..... ****The middle will usually end up about 1m (2.5 ft) high with a central planting area, gradually tapering down in height on a light slope to the bottom. You can block it off or add your bog/pond at the base if using.... +++++To minimise the quantity of organic materials required, you may prefer to add some rubble to the centre where the depth is greatest before adding your organic matter..... =====STEP 4: Add your organic materials & nutrition – for each of us this will be different, depending on what you have easy access to. Some people only add mulch or straw to their herb spiral and plant into pockets of compost. If you’re on a tight budget or this is all you have access to, then this system of ‘growing soil’ will work fine but ‘dead dirt’ is unlikely to bring you a successful outcome! ....“Like humans, plants thrive on good nutrition.”... ****Rather than buying in a trailer load of soil from your landscape yard, you can make your own soil teaming with living microorganisms. Soil that has a good structure (a crumbly fine texture that holds moisture well) is ideal for healthy productive plants...... *****To achieve this, add different kinds of organic matter that will break down over time, feeding your plants rather than just garden ‘dirt’ which tends to compact & provides little nutrition...... These organic ingredients are likely much cheaper than buying in soil too!..... ===Good sources of organic matter that will build soil fertility include:=== ***well rotted manure mushroom compost or even better, your own compostͺͺͺͺ ***Lucerne, sugarcane mulch and straw mulches all add organic matter to build soil.ͺͺͺͺ ***worm castings from your worm farm moistened coconut fibre; and for lower layers use materials like leaf litter, well chopped prunings and dry grass clippings...... ****Leaves from gutters are rich in nutrients & a free resource you can use to build your garden. ......... Sprinkle rock minerals (crusher dust from your landscapers is also suitable and very economical) and organic fertilisers as you add the organic matter to build in nutrients as a food source.ͺͺͺ ****Soil Nutrition: Adding plant food that will release nutrients slowly while you build the spiral will reduce maintenance to a minimum.ͺͺͺ ****If you have access to biodynamic preps you may choose to add these too. To assist breakdown and ensure there is enough moisture, water in each layer with liquid seaweed. Expect some natural settling to occur.,,,, ****Tip: It’s a good idea to check the pH balance of your organic matter – it may be necessary to sweeten the soil with some dolomite lime if the pH is too high.,, ****Moisture loving plants at the bottom of the spiral will thrive if you include some (optional) additional moisture holding ingredients like coconut fibre (coir peat), sphagnum moss, worm castings or some well aged compost (humus).
