Gardens are like pets…

When people say to us that they have trouble keeping plants alive, our response is usually a reminder that plants are like pets, they all need shelter, regular food and water. Some gardens are wilder, like a food forest system, and can survive predominantly on their own. If on the other hand you’re planning on raised garden beds and pots, know that these are the most intensive form of plant domestication and, as such, they require the most intense care to achieve good results. Water, fertilizer, temperature and pest control requirements will all be increased in these systems compared to a food forest approach.
