Garden Trends: Blended Gardens (part 3 of 11)

Blended gardens are a trend arising from a desire to marry beauty and functionality.  It’s cool to be able to say you grew something yourself but if you don’t have extra space for a segregated vegetable garden,  you can very successfully incorporate edibles in your garden design.  Think about edging beds with lettuce, or planting rhubarb for a striking foliage accent.   For this trend, I thought I would put together some ideas for plant combinations that combine vegetables and flowers .
