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.
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 Disabled Gardens are Made
Disabled Gardening Made Easy With Accessible Raised Garden Beds.
Hand Made in 3 Layer Fiberglass (UK)
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.
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
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.
Packaging and Shipping
Our disabled Gardens are shipped on Pallets and ship within 3-5 working days. Green Circle Gardens are made to order and can have a lead time of up two 2 weeks.
