Plant Flowers and Vegetables Together in Containers and in the Garden
You dont need to sacrifice beauty for homegrown flavor. Instead get creative and combine edibles and ornamentals in your gardens and containers.
Climbing spinach trained on a decorative trellis provides screening and a tasty addition to salads and sandwiches.
Try mixing a few vegetables into your container gardens. Use a colorful mix of lettuce and snapdragons for cool seasons. Grow tomatoes in containers near the house for easy access and to brighten a blank wall.
A bit more information: Regular harvesting will keep your vegetables producing and containers looking their best. Change container plantings as the seasons change. Cool weather plants like lettuce and pansies can be replaced with warm weather lovers like peppers, basil and zinnias.
