Garden Plans > 2014: Warm Garden



About this Garden Plan

An unashamedly summer garden with overtones of the Mediterranean. All warm tuscany shades offset by many purple blooms and fragrant flowers. Edged in old weathered bricks it feels quite mellow, the obalisks give it height and are smothered in peas and beans. Lots of companion planting means that fewer pests can find the crops. Marigolds are planted near blight resistant tomatoes and garlic hides in and amongst to repel insects.
