When it comes to having a veggie patch, there are many different ways in which you can beautify your veggie patch. One of the particular ways to beautify it is to add flowers to your veggie patch. Some tips for planting the flowers in your veggie patch include bordering the beds, covering the ground, interweaving rows, planting in patterns, planting in drifts, going vertical, and using containers.
- If your vegetable garden consists of long, straight rows of crops surrounded by mulch or bare soil, you may be missing out on some of its potential health benefits.
- Flowers are a surefire way to dress up a veggie plot, but some flowers work better than others.
- Some flowers can be invasive depending on your climate. For example, St. John’s wort and comfrey are attractive and useful, but they can be hard to get rid of.
