MY GAR­DEN HAS WET SPOTS TOO

NZ Gardener - - LETTERS -

So I re­ally en­joyed read­ing Sh­eryn Cloth­ier’s Au­gust ar­ti­cle on ed­i­bles that cope with soggy ar­eas. My new gar­den has a stream, pond and many boggy ar­eas. I am look­ing for­ward to the chal­lenge of get­ting into a whole range of dif­fer­ent gar­den­ing (from my pre­vi­ous gar­den, which was small and sunny) but had thought I would be lim­ited in plant­ing ar­eas for fruit trees. It was great to read that some of those ar­eas that get flooded oc­ca­sion­ally can still pro­vide food – I am plan­ning to try blue­ber­ries, as­para­gus and per­sim­mons in raised beds in some of those lower ar­eas and will see where we go to from there!
