Even though it's still technically winter, Spring is in the air with some beautiful warm days this week. It just makes you feel like growing something!
It doesn't matter how small your outdoor area is you can always have a garden. Our back deck and front verandah are our garden, full of hardy plants and herbs living in pots, containers and recycled tins.
I love the Scandinavian deck pictured above with the metal containers filled with geraniums and lavender.
Here are some more ideas I've collected that don't take up much space. I love the way some of these have repurposed recycled materials.
Isn't this a great idea for growing veggies and herbs?
I love how this old tyre has been turned into a hanging garden.
A clever use of guttering and looks good too.
I've often admired this balcony on a B & B on the south coast of NSW. Bouganvillea is so hardy and such a gorgeous colour amongst all the green.
Another brilliant idea with pallets that cuts down on weeding.
A vertical garden using something usually used for shoe storage.
What's growing at your place?
