Stunning Vegetable Garden Ideas

I recently visited the Arlington Court National Trust property in Devon. I was blown away by the beautiful vegetable garden in the grounds of the house. Here are some of the ideas that I found most inspiring as I try to develop my own vegetable garden.

String supports
Tall vegetables, such as broad beans, as well as tall flowers were supported by string webs staked into the ground with garden canes. This stopped the vegetables and flowers from drooping over and gave a very neat and orderly finish.

Twig supports
Peas were supported with twigs. Fine box structures were also created from twigs for other delicate plants to protect from birds. These were much more attractive than wire or net cages I have seen elsewhere.

Cane supports
Tall climbing beans were supported with canes arranged into conical teepee shapes or long wedges structures.

Slate chips
Slate chips were scattered on top of the soil around vegetables. This helps keep slugs and snails away and stops the soil drying out too quickly in warm weather.

Shaped beds
Potatoes were set in shaped beds rather than plain rectangular beds, giving a more interesting aesthetic.

Water containers
Old wooden water barrels give extra atmosphere - much more interesting than black plastic water butts.
