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
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.
