Cottage Garden in the High Desert?

15 years ago

Hi, I'm new to this website and am enjoying all the forums. We moved to El Paso, Texas, 2 years ago and I'm really having to relearn anything I knew about gardening. I spent most of my youth (and again the 4 years before we moved here) in Germany. So needless to say, I've had a lot of trial and error in my gardens since coming here.

Has anyone had any luck getting a cottage garden going in this type of climate? It looks like I've finally gotten a grip on what to plant and how here in the desert, and I mainly have a container cottage garden (is there even such a thing??? LOL) so far.

Fellow desertdwellers anyone???
