A mobile garden?
We are beginning to live a more mobile existence as more and more people move house on an almost regular basis but we still seem to think of gardens as being fixed. Once a plant or a pot is in place we tend to leave it there.
But what if we brought mobility to the garden? Obviously moving plants that we have planted in the garden is not so easy but what about plants in pots?
For example, could we have tomatoes all year round if we planted them in pots so that we could move them to more sheltered and warmer spots in the colder months?
A friend of mine has been harvesting tomatoes from the one potted plant for over a year now simply because, in winter, he moved it to a sheltered spot against a large brick wall.
In winter it’s against a brick wall that gives of plenty of warmth and in summer it’s moved to a more open spot so the heat from the wall doesn’t kill it.
The quality of the fruit seems to be the same and moving the plant takes minimal effort so why not try it?
