Top Left: Red leaved lettuce
From a design point of view, this planting bed would be difficult to maintain without the regular gardening that Disneyland affords. The Swiss Chard is an annual crop and will quickly grow large and go to seed if it is not eaten. The lettuce will start to look bad even sooner. While the sage will last, and does generally last quite a long time, these small sage plants are placed very close together and will soon crowd each other out. Here's an article in the Los Angeles Times about the gardens inside Disneyland - it seems they intend to inspire us - which they have. :-)
Does anyone have more information on how Disneyland keeps up it's impeccable gardens?
