Growing vegetables in small spaces or under adverse conditions can be a bit of a challenge at times! This is where niche gardening ideas like the Keyhole Garden come into play, and small spaces can be converted to produce great results. Growing vegetables for some can be a rewarding pastime, whilst for others it is a question of survival - if you can't grow it, then you can't eat it! Here we have one of the most successful of the Niche Vegetable Gardening ideas, but perhaps one that is the least talked about - Keyhole Gardening. Originally conceived off and promoted by the charity SendACow.org and now used successfully by many enthusiastic gardeners worldwide. Keyhole Gardening can now take its place amongst the other niche gardening methods such as Raised Bed, Square Foot, Straw Bale, and container gardening - to name but a few. If you would like to get the best results out of your vegetable growing efforts in small spaces or with limited resources - perhaps it's time to give the Keyhole Gardening concept a chance to impress!
Forty-five-year-old Flora New is surrounded by the sights, sounds, and smells of her youth as she moves back to her childhood home in Asheville, North Carolina, from Seattle, Washington. She deeply misses her mother, who died two years ago, but after restoring the aged Victorian home, Flora reads her mother's old gardening journals and brings her beautiful garden back to life.
Through her mother's journals, Flora learns about the values she and her flowers need to grow. Along with nurturing herself, she nurtures them. By coincidence or design, each time Flora plants a new flower, a new friend enters her life. It's as if the flowers come alive and exhibit their own unique personalities. The seeds cultivate a diversity of friendships. Gloria "Morning Glory" Moran, Lavenia "Lavender" Labelle, Rosa "Rose" Wasserman, DeCynthia "Bleeding Heart" Hart, Lily "Lily of the Valley" White, and Holly "Hollyhock" Alexander become an integral part of Flora's life.
This short story and gardening journal demonstrates that gardening is one of life's metaphors. Seeds are planted, they bloom, they are nurtured, and they die, only to start again, creating a beautiful work of art and friendships to be enjoyed.
