Hazel Garden Bed Frame
Garden Bed Frames Made of Hazel: an Old Gardening Tradition.
The tradition of providing beds – usually smaller, square ones – with fences made of woven hazel rods is centuries old. For example, in medieval farming and monastery gardening, they were used to separate apothecary herbs from culinary herbs to prevent mixing. However, they provide additional benefits: The beds’ firm boundaries help keep weeds, pests, and diseases in check. In our times, fencing can serve a completely different purpose: You can create small herb gardens in any urban backyard without concerns about the soil’s quality. Simply place the frame on the ground – even concrete or gravel surfaces, for example, are suitable (just shorten the posts) –, line the frame with the enclosed film and fill with good soil. The dimensions of the wicker elements may vary slightly.
Gardening at a Higher Level. Natural Intensification.
Especially in confined spaces, the old horticultural culture technique of the raised bed offers the opportunity to naturally intensify horticulture and multiply the crops without additional fertilizer; In southern China, the culture has been intensively cultivated on hillside beds for centuries and the special fertility of this cultivation has been used. A further development from recent times is the raised bed, which has many advantages: the soil temperature is significantly higher than in the field - the side walls are directly illuminated by the sun. The higher temperature of the soil allows up to three harvests a year, as the seeds germinate faster and the vegetables ripen earlier. The right filling with the best soil qualities is a prerequisite for optimal plant growth. We add a manual to each variant of our raised beds. Last, but by no means least, in gardens that are haunted by snails or voles, a raised bed offers better control and control options.
