I was then talking to Tina, a friend of mine who studied horticulture in England and came back with a wealth of information and a thriving small business. I told her about my dilemma and she told me that I needed a proper chef's garden and that she could help me plan it. At first she said "you don't actually have to build it....let's just do the drawings and then you can decided if and when you want to do it". Then she explained what a chef's garden was and told me exactly where it should be on my property based on the sun and space. A few of my husbands guys from his office (he's a builder) built it based on Tina's plans and, voila, I had the perfect place to start my growing project. Everyone who comes raves about how beautiful it is...I wish I could take the credit but it was totally Tina's vision...she is brilliant!
If you visit her website ( http://www.gardensensibilities.com/HOME.html) you can see my garden drawings from start to finish. Maybe she can help you too!
