Fig Pig Patio Garden at TBG

TBG director of horticulture Paul Zammit says this garden was replicated from my plan in Niki Jabbour's new book, Groundbreaking Food Gardens.

In this plan, I combine figs, cardoons, and colourful Swiss chard. I grow the figs in a tree form, to allow space below for the cardoon and chard. For the TBG, Zammit says that he will grow the figs in a fan shape in the centre of this fairly narrow bed. It should be stunning. I'm stoked!
