Genius Tips for Designing a Beautiful Vegetable Garden

Genius Tips for Designing a Beautiful Vegetable Garden

Today I’m joined by Alexandra Campbell of the Middle Sized Garden who gives us tips on how to design a beautiful garden filled with edible and medicinal plants. She includes specific plants and plant combinations, trees and shrubs, useful plants that look great, the cottage garden style, and the three principles for designing a spectacular garden, no matter the size or your budget.

Today you can also find a video on Alexandra’s channel, where she asks me about my new book, A Woman’s Garden, and using and growing edible flowers. You can watch it over here: https://youtu.be/nOr_Sqj7pDc

    Oh boy, what a fantastic discovery this was for me! I am now follwing Alexandra Campbell and bought her guide on privacy, the book i was looking for as a new house will be built next door. Your questions are so interesting, Tanya, and allowed her to answer in a riveting way. What a wonderful moment this video was! To celebrate, I treated myself to your book too. I am not a maker of beautiful things, but I feel I could under your gentle guidance!

    Two of my favorite garden channels! There is so much good information here. I’ve been working on several garden areas and can definitely refer back to this video! Thank Tanya, I did not know Alexandra was an author. Fun, more books to look up ๐Ÿ™‚

    Both of you inspired me to do new tries for my small garden with a small space issue. Thank you so much. Fortunately, Amazon says your book can be delivered to my place, South Korea. It’s supposed to be here on the 20th, May. I can’t wait. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just for your information, I received my copy of your book on Thursday, May 6th in Atlanta USA! It was so worth the wait! Am devouring every single page!!

  15. Ese on November 11, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    I’ve never seen a pear hedge before @9:09 it’d be great to know how to achieve that. I’ve just had a quick google and I can only see advice on wild pear trees.

  16. Lynn Gill on November 11, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    More important than anything is planting for pollinators.

    Hello from Spain. great vรญdeo for those of us begining. Sorry, i didn’t understand the name of the fruit tree Alexandra recomends, that keeps fruits until february And the pictures didn’t help me because i don’t recogbise it. what’s the name?

  29. eva on November 11, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    Very useful video! Also, I love your blouse! Where is it from, if you donโ€™t mind me asking?

  30. Rico S on November 11, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    That was really interesting. I’m staring at my barren grass lawn feeling exceptionally inadequate! I love the idea of replacing fences with hedges, unfortunately I’ve got a very thin fence, with little room for planting something that would grow to a similar height (say 80cm) whilst taking up a narrow footprint. I’ll keep searching.

    I ordered all my friends A Womanโ€™s Garden for our little garden club and Iโ€™m so excited to give them out !! Itโ€™s an incredible work of art I love it so much

  33. Nadine Tasmania on November 11, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    Edible flower frittata…what! I must do this. Unity harmony and balance I have never thought about a design plan = thank you~

  34. Clare Ellam on November 11, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    This is so inspiring! Iโ€™ll be referring back to this Iโ€™m sure. Thank you both for such a great collab!

  35. Dan Lit on November 11, 2022 at 10:03 pm

    Let nature take it back Tan, let the bugs and the bees take their place. Keep feeding it but let it rest for 5 years and grow its own humus. Then after the five years are up make it a dedicate space. The plants are not important, the biodiversity of the area is. Learn your birds, insects, sun positioning, wind strength and treat accordingly. You know what i mean. x.

  36. Devon Henry on November 11, 2022 at 10:04 pm

    Love seeing you both. Great information!๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒป

  37. rose hip on November 11, 2022 at 10:09 pm

    Thanks. I’ve designed my 3rd half plot as an edible forest-style garden beginning of March 2020. It’s coming along nicely

  38. Cindy R on November 11, 2022 at 10:11 pm

    This is perfect for a FOOD FOREST!!!

Thank you so much, Tanya and Alexandra for this interesting and informative video! (It is so good, I took notes!!!)
