Mettawa Manor Potager

A black chain link fence painted balck surrounds this potager to protect the edible and flowers from deer and rabbits. Painting the fence black made all the difference.Combined with other black wrought iron garden structures inside the chain link fence managed to blend in and look great. Vines of sweet pea, wisteria and beans also helped soften the fence and help it blend in. Tomatoes were tied to the base of the gazebo to gro wup, roses, snapdragons and lilies provide fresh flowers for the home. Unusual veggies such as purslane were seen (although the patch did not look like much was harvested!)
