Plan Notes

Garden designed around sunlight requirements and split between herbs and leafy greens. Herbs needing the least amount of water placed furthest from patio, so you needn't climb over rail as often. Sunflower location chosen to best utilize available sunlight. Best window viewing potential and distraction from work. Stagger sunflower planting so no plant blocks another plants sunlight from the other and for prolonged bloom. The stars of the show deserves to shine.
