Strawberries and Cream anybody?

Accessible Gardening Update May 2017

Potatoes, Spinach and Strawberries

I hope you enjoy today´s post as we harvest some potatoes, spinach and pick some strawberries which are ready to eat before season! 

Here is a short of my Dads Green Circle Garden which he has been enjoying for last 4 years!

I sometimes take photos of his progress to raise awareness on the Green Circle Garden, a wheelchair accessible raised garden bed to improve well being in Schools, Senior living, Hospitals and other community gardening projects.  


Since Then!

Our Strawberries have started to ripen in May and are providing a lot of good sized fruit as you can see. The spinach has started sprouting too after only a couple of weeks. The good thing about growing your own vegetables and fruit is that you can harvest at your own leisure and the plant will continue to produce allowing for the freshest produce when consumed.

How Green Circle Gardens Are Made

How Disabled Gardens are Made

Disabled Gardening Made Easy With Accessible Raised Garden Beds.

 

Hand Made in 3 Layer Fiberglass (UK)

Fiberlass Reservoir, 1 of 2 Parts

Fiberlass Reservoir, 1 of 2 Parts

Green Circle Gardens are hand made in Portsmouth, England. Each planter is hand layed up by two proffessonals using 3 layer Fiberglass to create the 500ltr water reservoir and grow tray. This process takes a whole day however the result is a robust 500ltr water tank that self irrigates, collects rainwater and can act as a gravity drip irrigation system for the rest of your garden. Planters can also be connected together to create a disabled garden area in your school or Home.

 

Post Processing

Quality Fittings

Once the Raised Garden beds have cured, the necessary holes are made and fittings attached. A water inlet valve allows a hosepipe to fill the reservoir when needed. 2 side outlets for drainage or gravity drip system and overflow in case of heavy rain.

 

Self Irrigation Kit

Green-circle-wheelchair-garden-UK-version-water-reservoir

Each Self Irrigation Kit requires 300Ft of 1/2" double braided Nylon Rope and 3m2 Absorbent Mat/Filter Fabric. This is a proven system that constantly irrigates plants at root level and ensure plants keep healthy and grow faster. Soil temperature is also 4-5c warmer than ground soil so plants flower earlier in the year.

Edible garden Update:


First Strawberries of the season

Picking some radishes for a salad

Here is an update of the Edible garden project posted a few months ago. 

If you are not aware of the Green Circle Garden please see the how it works video below

DID YOU KNOW...

This is the first Green Circle Garden Prototype and its been on test since 2012.

For everybody who is not familiar with this post, this is the first Green Circle Garden and has been on test since 2012. We plant it out from seed every year and let the hydroponic grow system do the rest. We have grown all types of flowers, herbs fruits and vegetables over the years. Above, radishes, chives, cherry tomatoes, ginger, basil and chilly's were grown.

2 months later the strawberries, Chilly's and ginger have really taken a stronghold and are producing some golf ball sized strawberries. 

Although the weather has been rather chilly over the past month or two there has been noticeble growth and the strawberries have doubled in size.

Tips on growing large plants

The most important of all is plant spacing, it is important to allow space for the seedling to expand in all directions 

Green Circle Garden allows you to grow edible plants in a fun, creative way, which can double the yield of the equivalent yard space.

The raised level of the Green Circle Garden gives plants room to spread. Air flow is better, disease is less and its wheelchair accessible.

Vegetables, especially larger vegetables, need room to spread. Often times if you can allow more root space your plants will be better off. The Green Circle Garden can act as a hanging basket maximizing the amount of plant growth too. Melons or Cherry tomatoes can hang and trail and use the 44 Gal water reservoir to grow as big as the sunlight available lets them. Roots of larger plants will find their way into the bottom water reservoir, increasing root space and plant production.

The photo shown is the edible garden of a Vitalia resident in Santander, Spain. The plants she chose were tomatoes, peppers, chilies, strawberries, cabbages, lettuce, chives and Basil.

The Green Circle Garden will help you grow herbs, fruits, and vegetables in a successful way, every time.
