Even if you have a patio a terrace or a balcony, you can create a garden in the middle of the city. An outdoor room in, although not only a garden. Your very own Eden.
If your area is north facing and has no sunlight, it is more difficult, but you can still turn it by plants that are growing into a green area. So the planting can be combined with creating a water feature, most of these are condition plants. Plant shapes and ferns to provide an assortment of different heights and leaf types. The giant holly fern grows to a height of 4 feet, the ostrich feather fern grows to three feet, other British ferns like the maidenhair and the marginatum group have peaks between 18 inches and 2 feet.They require a slightly acidic soil, so plant them in compost designed for growing rhododendrons or azaleas.
If, however, your patio garden is flooded with sunlight, you can have not only a garden but a garden. Cherry tomatoes, aubergines and peppers both hot and sweet, are. Oriental salad rocket leaves and baby spinach grow in boxes, beans and peas will cover a trellis with their roots in growbags. Pots of marigolds attract bees to help with pollination and will bloom through the summer. Bushes of smallish strands of coriander parsley and thyme and rosemary and sweet bay can be massed together in a corner. You could fill an entire salad bowl. You can grow an olive tree out of doors in a small southern backyard, but move it indoors and don’t expect to receive any olives from it!
The outdoor kitchen in the American style, where the kitchen sink has moved out, has not really caught on in Britain, but cooking and eating outdoors certainly have, even on a cool evening, with outdoor heaters, gas barbecues and gel fired firebowls. If you’ve implanted some honeysuckle and evening java, both of which will insure a wall and scent you have the perfect romantic setting.
