Beautiful and Productive Vegetable Gardens and Containers
Get the most beauty and edibility from every square inch of your garden or container.
Use color and texture to create attractive edible displays. The silver foliage of the artichoke contrasts with the bold red cabbage. The purple fruit of eggplant and leaves of All-America Selections winner Onyx Red ornamental pepper echo the purple to unify the planting.
Save space and increase the beauty by growing in wide rows or blocks. Give plants just enough room to reach their mature size.
Go vertical to save space, create a focal point and reduce the risk of disease.
A bit more information: Expand your edible garden by thinking substitutions. Use raspberries as hedges, asparagus as a backdrop to flowers, apple and peach trees as ornamental trees and rhubarb as a shrub. Your landscape can look beautiful when filled with attractive edible plants.
