Last month Nenya designed a pallet-sized garden for Bridgend Farmhouse. The design is inspired by the themes of One Planet Picnic and Wildlife Gardening. All plants are edible and many are attractive to wildlife. The underground part of the garden features a living soil that is rich in organic matter and is teeming with microorganisms and invertebrates which help nurture the plants.

All plants are perennial, and edible parts include fruit, flowers, leaves, roots, stalks, shoots and seeds. The flowers are attractive to pollinators (e.g. mint, raspberry, chives) and other creatures. Here’s the design description and plant list.

The miniature forest garden received 1st prize in the “One Planet Picnic” category at Dundee Flower & Food festival.
