Show #16/5203. A New Spin On Growing Vegetables

Growing Vegetables In Small Spaces

The next area is Eric's favorite part of Pamela's garden. This is her back patio. It's overlooking her kitchen and dining room and has great examples of how to use vegetables and herbs in containers. It's a peaceful place yet has a tremendous amount going on. This area was a challenge because it is a smaller space. She wanted to have room to grow plants and to eat here and have room to prepare food on the deck. What Pamela did was go vertical because if she had just used the floor she would have run out of space. Additionally it was a challenge because her whole house overlooks this deck. When you walk in her front door you see this deck, so it must look good. Again, going vertical was the answer. Bringing everything off the floor, hugging the walls with both boxes as well as the tall blue cylinder planters that she's used throughout allow her to grow big herbs and vegetables in a small footprint.
