How to cultivate fruits, vegetables, and herbs right alongside flowers
From salads and root crops to apples, cucumbers, squashes, and strawberries, home-grown food is currently being enjoyed in ever-increasing quantities. And why not? Growing your own provides exercise and nutritious food, and gardeners can choose their favorite varieties for taste or yield. But what about those who want to grow their own, but perhaps have a small garden, and do not want to lose its decorative appeal? This book demonstrates that the beauty of the garden can be enhanced rather than compromised by productive plants. Following the advice here will enable the reader to enjoy home-grown food that is fresher, healthier, and tastier—but which also looks fantastic.
