Mediterranean 4 x 4-foot Garden

Grow a Mediterranean vegetable garden using this plan for a 4 x 4 bed. The plan includes Mediterranean ingredients such as eggplant, basil, and tomatoes.

Grow the ingredients for Mediterranean recipes.

Mediterranean cuisine highlights fresh vegetables and savory, fragrant herbs. This bed gives you those fresh Mediterranean ingredients, no matter where you live. Roma tomatoes are perfect for making tomato sauce. Plant your Mediterranean vegetable garden in late spring to harvest the tomatoes, onions, and eggplant in summer.

For excellent results, fill your bed with premium quality raised bed soil, such as Miracle-Gro® Performance Organics® Raised Bed Mix—which is just the right weight and texture for raised bed growing—and feed plants with Miracle-Gro® Performance Organics® Raised Bed Plant Nutrition Granules to ensure they get all the nutrition they need. Third, be sure to choose Bonnie Plants® for your Mediterranean Garden. Bonnie has been around for over a century, so you know you're getting strong young plants of the highest quality.

If you want to expand your garden, place two 4 x 4 beds symmetrical on either side of a 3 to 4-foot path, wide enough for you and your tools. Try a second Mediterranean Garden, the Fast & Fresh Pizza Garden, or the Easy Summer Garden for the second bed.

These plants are pictured small to make the illustration simpler, but your bed will be spilling over as the plants grow! Following spacing on the plant labels, adding a few more plants than we have pictured if the spacing allows.
