Rumi Posted April 28, 2011 Report Share Posted April 28, 2011 (edited) This thread will be the place to suggest ideas for plants for the garden. Feel free to add a plant you wish to see grown at any time. This is a great way for anyone who might have commitment hesitation to contribute something little and important. Part of the discussion in this thread will be the grouping of plants into guilds. Guild design has been discussed in the general Community Garden thread as well as the design thread. Anyone interested in plant guilds can find a lot of information with a Google search. The basic idea is grouping plants together that supplement each other with nutrients, minerals, and protection, and compliment each other's niches in space and time. Think cooperation rather than competition. 7-layer forest garden upper canopy lower canopy shrub layer herbacious layer ground cover root layer vine layer For artists, this is the first place to check if you want to draw something. When you have images completed, post them to the Community Garden Artwork thread. http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/9589-community-garden-artwork/ The following plants have already been suggested: Strawberries Grapes Clematis Rosebushes Peaches Mustard Jasmine Borage Edited April 28, 2011 by Rumi Phantom Orchid 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
