Incorporate Edible Plants into Your Garden Landscape
In traditional gardening, folks often tend to separate their edible and ornamental plants. However, there's no rule that says you have to do that! In today's modern world, edible means more than growing your own delicious herbs and vegetables. You can also incorporate edible flowers, shrubs and trees throughout your garden landscape.
