Planning a garden
"Let your imagination wander in the garden as you would like it to be through a whole year and make notes of the delights you mustn't miss. Then, with your fanciful thoughts and inspirations already captured on paper, you have a framework to help you to convert dreams into a practical reality.
If a garden is carefully thought out from the beginning, it will be far less trouble to manage. The width of paths, size of beds, choice of herbs will all be crucial to giving you a garden which in time will virtually take care of itself. Even a small plot can grow its own fertilizer and pesticides, together with herbs that will attract useful insects and wildlife to help you maintain a healthy garden.
