Strawberry, Borage and Chive Polyculture



This is another style,
Not very dimensional.

Plants selected by Paula Westmoreland. High mulch production, high nutrient accumulation, and aromatic confusers for pests. It provides lots of pollen for bees too. The chives break out above the strawberries and add some higher texture.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
