To create a vegetable spiral is to decorate your garden differently. The gardening techniques to apply are different but accessible. Today, we invite you to learn how to make one at home, but since we are not pros, we contacted one! It is therefore Mathieu Foudral, landscaper and trainer in permaculture and agroecology, president of the Prize de Terre Association who gives you some advice!

Is making a vegetable spiral accessible to everyone?

It is true that the realization of an aromatic spiral requires a lot of materials such as earth, sand, stones, wood, mulching but also a lot of time. Everything will therefore depend on our available resources: materials present on site, labor and, it must be admitted, money. The best is still to do a participative and friendly site to combine business with pleasure! Afterwards there are now prefabricated spirals in gabions, or even in plastic. So there is a spiral suitable for everyone…

Can we give a theme to the spiral?

The interest of the spiral is the creation of small different ecosystems in the same place (drier, wetter area, more in the shade, sunny, etc.), for an explosion of biodiversity. We can therefore potentially find an area that will suit each plant, whether aromatic, floral, aquatic, or why not vegetable. If the spiral was used mainly for aromatic plants, it is an open system that allows all fantasies.

How to proceed ?

It would take a long time to explain to you. So if you want to make your own vegetable spiral, you will find all my advice step by step on my blog.

How to maintain your vegetable spiral?

There is little maintenance because the objective of a permaculture system is that it requires minimal attention. It is a system in equilibrium, or at least very close to it. In the end, the interview is limited to picking. We must also be inspired by nature. The soil is always covered, so we will mulch it regularly with hay, straw or mulch. This will greatly limit the arrival of unwanted plants and increase water autonomy. Weed control and watering should be limited. Maintenance will therefore be minimal. It consists of possible pruning, picking, planting or propagating.
