Today I’m going to talk to you about growing plants in beds, and when it makes sense and when it doesn’t.
Whether you are growing plants for yourself or to sell it doesn’t really make a difference. Gardeners are gardeners and we all love plants. I’ve been doing this my whole life and I really don’t know how to do anything else.
Today is April 16th and Duston and I are pushing to get things dug because once things leaf out we can’t dig them up anymore. I love Japanese maples and when we bought this property I bought thousands of them as seedlings from Heritage Seedlings in Oregon.
I have this bed that I need to clear out for more room. There are several different varieties and sizes of Japanese maples in this particular bed.
As you can see in the video below, growing plants in a bed is a lot of work. For me it makes much more sense to grow in containers. It’s a lot easier, less strenuous, less time consuming and a lot less physical labor!
