When I lived in Ohio and had a small garden I learned to take advantage of every single nook and cranny in the garden. Since I didn’t have much space, I needed every single inch that I could find to grow all the plants that I wanted to grow. Here in Maine I have way more space than I could ever cultivate, but I still take advantage of all those tiny spaces here and there, like the space under our little front porch between the porch and the giant rock that sits in front of the door.
Mostly I like filling them because otherwise they fill with weeds. This space fills with weeds and looks messy, I thought adding creeping thyme would fill it with lovely herbs that would bloom and provide beauty for me and food for the pollinators. Creeping thyme is one of my favorite plants to use filling the spaces here and there.
What’s a favorite plant you have for filling spaces throughout the garden?Filed under Around the Garden | Comments (3)
