Amazing maizen garden mazes

Nasa maize maze garden

Check out these very cool garden mazes.  Imagine how much time was spent in planing, planting and clipping these plants.  Some are hedges, and some are maize.  All are very awesome.  I certainly tip my hat to these gardeners…

Beauty in the old vege patch…

Pretty garden

Quite often you see vege patches that have one function – food.  These guys have gone one better and made some impressive vegetable gardens that not only feed the masses but are also pretty.

 

This is so clever – using an old wagon wheel as a herb garden.

 

Pretty garden

 

Is it a maze, a garden, or a vege patch?

Cottage perfect garden…

I just love the use of the wood in this vege patch.

Another perfect cottage vege garden.  Love those hanging pots..

Symmetrical gardening is always a winner!

What can I say, another amazing garden – I wonder if this is a community garden or for a very big family…

 

 

Now this is an impressive garden.  Using box hedging as a border makes the vege patches functional as well as beautiful.

Not sure what they’ve used for edging here?  Maybe some stones?  Whatever they are they give the garden some depth and character.

Succulents and Christmas – they just go together

Succulent plants

These succulents make Christmas look amazing.  I may go and gather some succulents from around the garden and plant them up to make a pretty Xmas centrepiece, decoration or wreath.  My only question – with everything else that’s still left to do – do I have time?  The thing that I think makes them really special, and extra Chrtistmassy is the use of the colour red.

Amazing plants that make your garden look pretty and your veges grow

Marigold flower

If you plant these great plants with your fruit & veges you may find you get a better crop.

 

Borage:

 

Borage flowers

 

Plant with tomatoes, cabbage, strawberries, squash.  The worms that infest toms and cabbages really don’t like living near borage, and the borage also encourages bees to the garden.  Plus the leaves are chock full of goodness, so put them in the compost afterwards.

 

Basil:

 

basil plant

 

Plant with tomatoes and peppers.  They repel whitefly, aphids & mites, and attract bees (if you can leave the basil long enough to flower).  If not…  tomatoes & basil go great on pizza.

 

Marigolds

 

Marigold flower

 

Plant with everything.  1) It supposedly makes fruit & veges difficult to smell because it has a rather strong aroma, and is also distracting so the bugs get hung up on the marigold before moving on (by which tine they’ve had their fill).  2) Makes your sometimes ugly part of the garden look pretty!

Anyone fancy an elephant in the garden?

I love these topiary animals for those bigger gardens out there..  Although I’m sure I could manage a bunny or two.

Growing pumpkins on a trellis

Pumpkins on a trellis

Okay I have 1 question…  Do you think the umbrella’s in case a pumpkin falls on her head?  This is a cool idea for a vertical garden (maybe not pumpkins).
