I was zipping through my feed reader this morning and came across a video that I was really excited about. Last year I read a book called Paradise Lot written by two guys who have made a permaculture garden with mainly perennial plants in the US in a climate where they have snow on the ground for 3 – 4 months every year. It’s the first cold climate garden where this has been tried. It was an interesting read, and today I saw what it actually looks like. I’ve signed up to Geoff Lawton’s website (it’s free) and so I watched the full video of 14 minutes. It’s amazing what can be done - it opens your eyes to the possibilities.
The day after a record breaking heat wave, I was picking plump juicy strawberries from the garden to have with breakfast. The wicking beds are clearly the way to go.
