I would like to share my no-dig garden!
I made it last year as an addition to the old one.The new one is partly shadowed by big oak trees and where those trees stands is also a small slope down towards my garden ending with an old stone wall. I thought it would be good because it would be less windy, more warmth but also some shadow if it becomes really hot. It worked well last summer but I had to water a lot anyway because the oaks leafs came late and the warm weather came early. So this summer I think I shall plant more even in the old kitchen garden really early in the spring.
I also have boxes on the kitchen side of the house where I have tried to grow different kind of plants but not had a great success yet. Only one year when I filled one with meadow seeds - oh wow!! I have some thought in taking in hens or geese’s too but I am not sure…And I also need to make a new land for my old strawberry plants…But as for today it is 20 cm of snow over everything and snow is falling down.So I am planning what seeds to buy.
My place is called “Stjärnstoffs Gård” (gård = cottage/farm) it is built in the old traditional south of Sweden style. It was built in 1993 and 1996 and they used recycled materials from old houses in the south of sweden. Today visitors belief our house is 2-300 years old.We are trying to make the garden look a little as if it was an old garden. In the garden of the house I lived in before this place I took inspiration of an english cottage and when we moved from it the garden was a paradise…
