Our Big Green Week Garden!!

Today we put a pop up edible garden next to the Big Green Week Hub at Harbourside, just next to the fountain steps.

The garden is an example of how space┬ácan be used, even if it is really limited, by growing plants in containers, and how even in a really tiny space it’s possible to fit in 5 or 6 smallish pots full of herbs and veg plants, and make that small space look both lush and productive.

We also have added a bench, so that people can sit in, and use the garden whilst it’s in situ!!

Why not pop along and take a look and think about what plants you could grow in a lost space around your home?

Below is a list of the plants we have used. All the trees are on dwarf root stocks and so won’t get more than 6 feet tall, making them ideal for small spaces, or front gardens.
