Edibles in the Landscape

Vegetables and herbs can be grown in the tried-and-true raised garden beds or garden plots like our parents and grandparents always did, but if you're short on space, it's time to think outside the planting box. Almost all veggies and herbs, and many fruits, can be grown in containers on a patio or balcony. Or, incorporate them into your existing landscape alongside non-edible plants.

Leafy greens like cabbage, kale and swiss chard, as well has fragrant herbs like thyme, sage, and oregano can be incorporated into your flower beds or containers right next to your pansies or other blooms.
