While many gardeners like the idea of integrating their veggie patch and flower garden, actually doing it is another thing.

Here's some help.

Graham Rice's colourful book is especially relevant to those with small gardens, giving a host of tips to point you in the right direction.

The award-winning garden writer discusses how to meld plants in a variety of sites from small corners to large borders, and how to incorporate raised beds and containers.

Rice advises on how to ensure season-by-season continuity with vegetables, herbs and flowers. There's plenty of tips on which varieties to grow and their various flower and foliage companions. And for those who want go the whole hog, there's even a section on edible flowers.
