Very pretty! I have impatiens overflowing my window boxes that will be dead, dead, dead with the first frost Sad Everything looks so bare from then on. My front patio runs the length of the house and has probably 20 large plant pots filled with hydrangeas, roses and peonies. It's lush in the summer, not so much from now until late March!

Photo? You can wait until April if you want. Side by side photos?

You know winter is here when our impatiens die! This was the first summer I didn't plant any. Too busy in other areas.

Here's the current pictures, I'll have to go look for last spring's photos if I took them.  The cool nights are just now starting to turn my hydrangeas leaves yellow.

Remember when I said my weeds green up nicely after a rain, LOL!  That's my front "lawn"  don't look too closely however Wink  The fountain's raised platform is subsiding, we need to shore it up this winter.

Your "lawn" is so green! Do you use MM in your pots? Please take the same shots in April when the roses are blooming and the hydrangea are greening up. I have a hydrangea that is shaded most of the day in the summer. Mine doesn't take the direct sun very well. Love your salvia! Perennial?

The pots were long before MM so no, I have no idea what on earth I used in them, but I put several inches of compost in them each spring and then fill them up to the top with wood chips to help retain moisture.  I don't feed with anything else.  I'm going to drop a few red wigglers in each of the pots this year as I have plenty now to spread.

This patio is the north side of the house so the hydrangea are tucked as tightly as I can to the house.  They don't do well with the hot sun either, but are spectacular in the spring and again in the fall.  They survive the summer throwing a few flowers.  The salvia are perennial.  I bought a 3 pack at Costco a couple of  years ago and they've been the best.  

I'm supposed to turn my compost pile today - I guess it will just have to wait out the rain, LOL!

Cape Coddess, I wish I lived close to the sea to harvest sea weed for my garden.  It's a 4 hour drive there for me :-)  I will grab much more next trip over.

Yes, lettuce, bok choy, rapini, carrots, radishes and leeks.
My lettuce were doing well until an early frost singed them.  Hoping the tent will revive my crop.

Nosmok, I love the seats around your boxes.  They would be so handy when you're working.  My newest beds are low enough to have them, my other table tops are too high.

I really like that too. Stooping over from a standing position gets uncomfortable fast, and sometimes a little tricky. Kneeling makes it hard to move sideways and is less than great on a bad knee I have. But sitting while gardening is great.

Thanks!  I figured gardening should be enjoyable and as easy as possible.  My beds are 24 " high. There is Garden mix the first 12 inches and MM the next 8-10 inches.  The bench surround is easy to sit on and I can also stand on them to reach trellised pickings.  The hoops are electrical conduit, primed and painted green.  I just added the center pole at 3 feet above the beds to support plastic in winter and tuille in spring.  Seems to be working so far.  Warmer and moist inside.  My lettuce and fennel plants are staging a comeback.

Thank you for sharing that.  It gives me more incentive to get my winter garden up & running!  Or at least get it ready for next winter so I'm prepared.

Winter Gardens - Photos - Page 2 Empty Photos of my winter greens bed

Post  BeetlesPerSqFt on 11/30/2016, 12:10 pm

I wanted to do some gardening over the winter. My original plan was window cold frames, but I didn’t get them built, and didn’t get seedlings started in time, and other plants didn’t get out of the way in time – and I’ve since learned that window/plastic cold frames can be a hassle due to venting and watering needs, which is difficult with holiday travel plans...

So for this winter I’ve made a belated attempt at covers instead. First I made a frame using freshly hewn zebra grass stems “braided” together. Next I gathered up the few planned winter plants I’d started that were scattered through the garden and transplanted them.  Then I gathered up more transplants courtesy of volunteers, marked with a *, left to right, starting in the back row:
potted parsleys, wild arugula, komatsuna*, radicchio, radicchio w/ salad burnet* around the edges
minutina/parley, parsley*, 1/2 green wave mustard*+ 1/2>, red giant mustard, lettuce
beets, mache* w/claytonia*, rocket, lettuce, green wave mustard*
Winter Gardens - Photos - Page 2 Img_8119

Finally, I covered the frame with Agribon-50 and clothes-pinned it to the frame, and also tied it down to the nails my grid attaches to. I have no idea how it will hold up to the wind.  I know the plants will grow slowly if at all, but fresh greens are such treat in the winter, even if the servings are small.
