Q.Container or Fixed Garden

Anonymous added on April 4, 2014 | Answered

We have a great space to start a garden at our new house (space was used in the past for a garden by prior owners). However, that space will be covered during a renovation/addition next spring. Any new garden area will likely be affected by the renovation. Should we stick to container gardening this year so I can have hopes for some garden next year or use the great space we have?

I would determine exactly how much space would be affected by the renovation and use the remaining area for a small garden. No sense in having it go to waste. That said, if you feel the renovation would endanger any plantings you have, containers or a raised bed elsewhere might be the way to go. This really depends on what you will be planting (i.e. vegetables - tender or hardy - flowers, etc.) Generally, a vegetable garden put in now would be finished for the season by next spring, when a new garden would be implemented, so you could use that space for your garden this season and then use whatever is left or containers for the following season.
