Gourmet’s 4 x 4-foot Mediterranean Garden

Mediterranean cuisine highlights fresh vegetables and savory, fragrant herbs. This bed design gives you those fresh Mediterranean ingredients, no matter where you live. Plant in late spring to harvest the tomatoes, onions, and eggplant in summer. The Finished Plan below shows the planted bed—the plants are pictured small to make the illustration simpler, but your bed will be spilling over as the plants grow! The second illustration shows two Color Coded Planting Areas. Look at the drop-down tabs to find planting instructions for each area.
