Growing Veggies On A Fence – Vertical Gardening Helps With Harvesting
Every year we plan a vegetable garden but until fairly recently it was plotted out in a standard rectangular garden plot. Then two things happened… Making the “Move” to Vertical Gardening The first thing to happen was we moved. That’ll shake things up in the gardening department. We no longer had the type of space for a large garden plot as we had before and, yet we still wanted the pleasure of growing our own produce. Although we had less room for a veggie garden, what we did have was sun, and lots of it, and the second thing that happened – an extremely ugly chain-link fence that extended up 8 feet. Having had the pleasure of writing several articles on vertical gardening, I knew exactly what to do with that unsightly fence, at least in the interim. Growing Veggies on a Fence That was almost three years ago … Read More

Harvesting Nostalgia – Sharing Memories In The Garden

Harvesting Nostalgia – Sharing Memories In The Garden
We all have fond childhood memories that make us smile, and for many of us here at Gardening Know How, these stem from the garden. In fact, one of my fondest memories was playing in the backyard patio garden at my grandparents’ house. I didn’t get to see them often, but when I did, this was the place I wanted to be. Grandpa grew the most amazing strawberries, my favorite fruity treat, and I would always sneak some of those tasty morsels as I played. Then I would sit quietly by the koi pond and stuff my face. He thought the birds were getting them. I still think of this each time I take a bite into a juicy, fresh-picked strawberry – homegrown just like Grandpa’s. Childhood Memories in the Garden It’s no secret that getting children involved with gardening or nature in some way can create a … Read More

Vines In The Landscape – Northwest Invasive Vine Plant Info

Vines In The Landscape – Northwest Invasive Vine Plant Info
My feelings about vines are mixed. I love the look of vines, especially climbing over a fence or an arbor, but as a gardener and nature lover, I am concerned about invasive species. Several types of rambunctious vines fall into this category here in the Pacific Northwest. Here are TWO of the worst. English Ivy Vines English ivy is beautiful and well-behaved in many places, but it’s an invasive monster in the Northwest. The vine blankets shrubs and wraps itself around trees, which frequently die for lack of sunlight. The weight of the vines can also break branches, weaken trees, and make them more susceptible to disease. Ivy grows year-round in the moist, mild climate of Western Oregon and Washington. It crowds out native ferns and wildflowers, and it keeps wildlife away, with the exception of rats that live under the thick vines. Some species, including certain butterflies, are … Read More
