Sunflowers, Nasturtiums, & Marigolds !

Rebecca built this 20 ft long trench for a wall of sunflowers, with a lower canopy of marigolds and nasturtiums. Sunflowers are easy to grow (not too picky about the soil), they are beautiful, and they attract birds to your garden who can be beneficial in eating unwanted bugs (and hopefully not your plants!)

Nasturtiums and Marigolds are great because they are also very easy to grow, beautiful and colorful, totally edible(peppery, great in salads or as a garnish), and they ward off pest insects that could be damaging to your plants.
