Nutritious Garden in a Pot
Add a bit of nutrition to your diet and landscape. Grow a container full of nutritious vegetables for your patio, deck or balcony.
Try using peppers, eggplants or tomatoes for a vertical accent. All are nutritious and suited for container gardens. Or how about corn for some fun. And try growing cucumbers, peas or beans up a decorative trellis a nutritional vertical accent for your pot.
So be creative and look for small scale attractive vegetables suited for containers and high in nutritional value.
A bit more information: Add nutrition packed plants throughout your landscape. Try tucking a few tomatoes, peppers or eggplants in with your annuals. Use pole beans, cucumbers and squash to mask a chain link fence. You can create edible edges for flower beds using parsley and nasturtium plants.
And if space allows, replace traditional shrubbery with raspberry, currants and elderberries. Rhubarb makes a bold statement in both the vegetable garden and landscape while the airy foliage of asparagus creates a nice backdrop for flowers and other ornamental plants.
