Plants for bed edging
In the formal farm garden, the Buxus dominated as a bed enclosure for centuries. The explosive spread of the boxwood trigger, accompanied by the death of the drive, put an end to this Tradition. Today, evergreen small trees or flowering plants adorn the frame of the four beds. The following selection presents you the appropriate species and varieties as a boxwood replacement :
Berg – Ilex (Ilex crenata), whose variety ‘Dark Green’ looks similar to Buxus
Dwarf Liguster (Ligustrum vulgare), whose varieties ‘Lodense’ grow compact, dense and evergreen
Small-leaved Rhododendron (mictranthum), here the variety ‘Bloombux’ with robust cut compatibility
Purple chives (Allium schoenoprasum), an eye-catcher not only in the herb bed thanks to pretty flowers
Lavender (lavender officinalis) the ideal border for sunny areas
Carnation (Armeria maritima), especially the variety ‘Düsseldorfer Stolz’ with bright red flower heads
The horizontal autumn Aster (Aster lateriflorus var. horizontalis). The dark-leaved variety ‘Prince’ gives the border the look of a small, blooming Avenue. The dwarf shrub straw flower (Helichrysum italicum) we do not want to withhold from you as a fragrant bed border here. The needle-like, silvery shimmering foliage harmonizes wonderfully with the yellow flowers and provides the kitchen with fresh herbal shoots with a spicy curry taste.
Vegetable plants from classic to modern
The basic structure of a farmer’s garden with 4 beds around a wayside Cross is based on the traditional 4-field economy in mixed culture. This system of land change has been known and recognized since the 11th century. In separate beds weak, medium and strong feeders are planted, which change annually, so that the soil does not leach. The fourth bed is used to cultivate site-faithful plants, herbs or berry bushes. If it is your intention to follow this principle, the following list provides you with an overview of popular vegetable plants, divided according to their nutritional needs:
Weak feeders
The following crops are content with a low supply of Nutrients. If heavy-and medium-eaters have settled a bed, they either let the area lie fallow for a year or plant it with these starving artists:
Field Bean (Vicia faba), whose pretty flowers also serve as Bumblebee and butterfly Meadow
Peas (Pisum sativum) that only get a little compost to provide a rich harvest
Lamb’s lettuce (Valerianella locusta) gives you magnificent lettuce heads even without fertilizer
Radishes (Raphanus sativus var. sativus) give them spicy-hot tubers until autumn
Among the historical vegetables, lentils (Lens culinaris) score with an uncomplicated care program, which is limited to watering and weeding. The absence of fertilizer does not detract from a rich harvest. In the large farmer’s garden, the green pillars of powerful pole beans (Phaseolusvulgaris) already announce from a distance that here is worked according to the old fathers custom. A little compost is enough to enjoy the harvest-fresh, vitamin-rich vegetables after a maturing period of 8 weeks.
