There are as many different ways to put them together as you can think of to fit any size, shape, watering and light conditions. Some of us meticulously plan them out to make optimal use of space and some up of just bung some things into a pot full of dirt and see what happens. We grow vegetables, fruit, flowers, and trees, buy them from hothouses or sow everything from seeds.
We pour food and water and time and love into each plant and end up with more food than we could possibly eat in a week, or come out one day only to find that an unseasonable late frost or rogue gust of wind has decimated them.
I know this forum is home to quite a few gardeners, from beginners with questions to experts with extensive knowledge able to advise. I'm a beginner; this year I've attempted my first-ever garden (almost entirely from seed) on my small apartment's smaller deck, and living in Las Vegas it's been a real challenge to keep everything watered. I didn't look anything up to start with, but I have learned so much
by just planting everything that looked like it might be fun or delicious.
