The Order of Things

Small raised bed with bark mulch and small plants, old wheelbarrow behind

Replanted Rubus nepalensis ground cover propagation bed. Start early

“Critical” was my word of the day on a recent tour, so I thought I’d formalise the list of things I think are critical when creating a forest garden

  1. Plan
  2. Windbreaks
  3. Propagation
  4. Canopy
  5. Mulch
  6. Ground cover
  7. Rabbit fence

To be honest, this probably applies equally to all gardens!
