There is nothing much new in gardens. However trends do change and certain things reinvent themselves. The movement towards the use of culinary plants within the garden design has become very popular. And for good reason.
Wherever possible I like to include some culinary or herbal plants within garden beds or pots. Dedicated vegetable and picking gardens are also coming back into vogue. Growing fruit, vegetables, herbs and cultivating plants that can be picked for arrangement certainly does bring a pleasure and lasting experience for all concerned. Children in particular learn so much growing vegies.
