What is Patio to Table Gardening™? At the heart, Patio to Table Gardening™ means the food on your table came directly from your patio or personal urban garden. It emphasizes a direct relationship between what you prepare in your kitchen to what you grow and harvest in your yard or on your patio.
Here are some ideas for getting started on your own patio to table garden from the Gardenuity horticultural team:
1. Decide what you want to grow based on what you like to eat. Don't spend time growing edibles you will never prepare or want to share. Some creative patio garden combinations include the Gardenuity Cocktail Garden, (Basil Sweet Dani, Apple Mint, Rosemary, Pineapple Sage, Lavender, Lime Basil), the Gardenuity Sweet Tea Garden, (Peppermint, Lemon Balm, Sweet Tea, Chamomile, Calendula), the Gardenuity Summer Vegetable Collection (Edamame, Sweet pepper, Cucumber, Eggplant, Summer Squash and Debut Tomato) and the Gardenuity Mint Collection (Peppermint, Chocolate Mint and Spearmint). http://www.gardenuity.com
2. Select a good container. Think about trying a grow bag, the Gardenuity Grow Bag was specifically developed so plants could produce a large harvest and thrive on patios or gardens. The Gardenuity Grow Bag fabric allows air to move freely in and out of soil and the root zone. This means the roots of the plants are air pruned and will not try to circle around the wall of the container. This leads to better root development within all areas of the soil. The Gardenuity Grow Bag set comes with everything you need to get started, soil bricks, all natural plant food, plants or Grow Balls, a bag for mixing the soil, and disposable gloves for those who are not ready to get dirty.
3. Ensure good container drainage. Drainage is important, especially when you are gardening on your patio or in a small space. The water needs to drain out of the container and not pool.
4. Provide sufficient sunlight. Make sure your plants have ample sunshine; typically vegetables need a minimum of 6 hours. If you are in a hot climate, it is ok to move the containers to shade after a morning of sun to beat the baking afternoon heat.
According to a five year study by The National Gardening Association, food gardening in the U. S. is at the highest level in more than a decade. "We have seen an increase in first time gardeners, and through personal interaction with Gardenuity associates these gardeners are having great success and enjoying the process of gardening and being a part of the Gardenuity gardening community" Craig Harmer, Horticultural lead for Gardenuity. "We work with farmers, nurseries and horticultural teams across the country making sure the plant varieties we offer through Gardenuity are of the highest quality. We breed the plants first for taste, then nutritional value and for their ability to produce a strong harvest."
