By Lisa Ray, The Gardening Advisor, And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden… Gen. 2:8
To create a vegetable garden that looks as good as it tastes, plant colorful flowers and lush herbs in with your vegetable crops.
Instead of hiding your vegetable bed in an out-of-the way place, dress it with a profusion of colorful blooms for a garden that will rival most flower beds. Plant vegetables mixed with rows of flowers, edible flowers, and herbs. All the plants in this garden need a site with full sun and rich, well-drained soil to grow their best. Vegetables with attractive fruit or unusually colored foliage add even more interest-both to garden and to your table.
Plant these in your Companion Garden for color, flowers, appearance, and food:
Vegetables (leaves, flowers, and food)
Scarlet Runner Beans
Herbs (flowers and leaves)
Black Mustard (seeds)
Foliage Plants (leaves)
Rosemary (some have flowers)
