When Bonnie Plants and P. Allen Smith recently challenged a talented group of noted garden bloggers to come up with a creative edible container garden using an arrangement of three pots (one 24-inch, one 18-inch, and one 14-inch), winner Jenny Peterson of J. Peterson Garden Design knew just what to do. “I’m a landscape designer who specializes in small spaces, so I’m always looking for ways to garden vertically to save space,” she says. “I’ve also been reading a lot recently about herb spirals, in which more drought-tolerant herbs are planted on the top so they drain well—and suddenly I had the idea to put the two projects together!”
