Growing your own fruit, vegetables, or herbs can be very rewarding, but many people don’t know where to start. Whether you’re an experienced gardener who has the time for lots of maintenance, or a complete beginner who wants to spend minimal time in their garden, Floral & Hardy can create an edible garden to suit your skill level.
Edible gardens are becoming increasingly popular, not just in private homes, but also in schools and other communal spaces.
Design is important when it comes to creating edible gardens. Floral & Hardy will examine your existing garden space, and advise what could be achieved. If you have poor soil, then you might want to consider installing raised flower beds, which also mean you can grow more in a small space. A lot of shade can make it difficult to grow certain plants, but not impossible, so we’d make suggestions of edible plants that don’t need much sunlight, such as root vegetables and leafy greens.
Expert Advice For Your Edible Garden
It’s important that your finished garden looks good, and at Floral & Hardy, we combine our knowledge of horticulture, with our knowledge of garden design, to create edible gardens that are beautiful and practical. You may wish to use your entire garden as a growing space, or just a small fraction of an existing garden. Either way, we would listen to your design ideas, and come up with a solution to suit your needs.
Plant your favourite produce
Some people worry that edible gardens require a lot of maintenance. While some fruits and vegetables can be a lot of work to grow, there are lots of plants that are suitable for beginners and require only light gardening. From salad leaves, tomatoes, and herbs, to potatoes, beans, and peas, there are lots of plants that are suited to inexperienced gardeners. Floral & Hardy will ensure that plants suit the soil type, and are in the right position in the garden, which gives you a better chance of growing vegetables successfully.
You may already be growing fruits and vegetables in your garden, but feel that space isn’t being used to its full potential. We can redesign your edible garden to make it neater and easier to maintain, or draw up a plan to make the most of the space.
The Benefits of Edible Gardens
Food is a necessity, but many people don’t think about what they fuel their body with. Even fruit and vegetables from the supermarket aren’t great, because you don’t know what the producers used to grow the produce.
When you commit to growing edibles, such as fruit and vegetable, you can enjoy a healthier lifestyle. Green vegetables offer the most health benefits, and runner beans grow well in UK gardens. You can also search for other delicious options to boost your intake.
Whether it’s growing salad ingredients, or producing a selection of fresh herbs, you can live your best life from your backyard.
