Oh, Sue, if only I could afford that! I'm afraid rectangles will have to be the order of the day with the plants themselves in circular or semicircular blocks. The sides of the raised beds will be of treated wood which does not bend very far! There are lots of potagers illustrated in Joy Larkcom's book which look very lovely because of the planting. And at 83 I am better on straight paths than curved, I think. The main idea of the potager is to make it easier, by providing raised beds and paths to work from , for me to carry on gardening and still have my beloved fresh veg, and fruit to eat.
