I am moving into a new place IN CORPUS CHRISTI TEXAS and everything is perfect...except the patio :( because I am on the first floor there is an approximately 4.5 foot tall privacy fence made of solid wood. See the bottom units in the picture below for an idea. To make matters worse, I will be getting Eastern sun exposure.
I know I can use a planter box on the outside of the fence for herbs but space will be tight. Can anyone make suggetions of how to best use this space AND what plants are best? I will for sure be doing basil and rosemary.
Also, anyway to get plants growing on the INSIDE of this space? I prefer edible things (e.g. herbs, veggies, fruit) and I am not opposed (or unfamiliar) with purchasing seeds for dwarf varieties. I can do flowers, but prefer things I can eat over just look at. Any plant suggestions?
Any and all info will be helpful!! I just got the hang of container gardening this year on my beautiful full sun patio and now feel like a total newbie again :(
