From your garden to your table.
Do you love the idea of stepping outside and picking sun-ripened fruit from your flowerbeds or patio? It's easy to do when you incorporate edibles into your garden design. When designing with fruit trees, berries, edible flowers and herbs, first consider the plants' ornamental qualities as well as their height, spread and sunlight requirements. Many fruit trees are now available in dwarf sizes, making them ideal for the edible garden. Some strawberry plants bloom for months and look attractive in containers. Blueberries and some dwarf fruit trees are perfect for the sunny patio. Some annuals have edible flowers—and look good in the garden as well as in salads and more.
