Vegetable Gardens – Designer Ideas

In this episode of Garden Design Show, Rachel will tell you all about how you can incorporate fruits and vegetables into your garden using stunning tips and tricks, regardless of what size your garden is.

This episode features a guest expert, a broadcaster and the best selling author of “Year-Round Vegetable Gardener”, Niki Jabbour. They will also discuss Niki’s new book called “Groundbreaking Food Gardens”. They look at ideas for growing edibles in small space gardens. Also featured is the food producing modern courtyard Rachel designed that is in Niki’s book!

This is what’s in Groundbreaking Food Gardens

One of the garden ideas discussed from the book is Amy Stewart’s (‘The Drunken Botanist”) collaboration with Susan Morrison – their Cocktail Garden shows just how fun plants can be and you can grow things you like to drink! You will be surprised what berries and edible flowers you can add to your salads that came straight from your fruit and vegetable garden.

Don’t forget the wildlife to help you grow vegetables…

Pollinators and wildlife can make an enormous difference to the quantity of vegetables your garden will produce. The natural side of the garden and the flowers that attract the pollinators and how you can keep them. Identify good bugs that will help you grow your fruit and vegetable garden or herb garden.

You will also see a sneak peak of Rachel’s design on the fruit and vegetable producing garden, which looks very modern and no one would think that it’s food producing. The book also features a concrete and steel garden, a good way to use recycled materials and concrete is ideal for some plants.

Before they wrap things up, Rachel asks Niki on what her advice is for people who are starting to build their own gardens and suggestions on vegetables and herbs you can mix in your garden plants. Niki recommends that you start small, so that growing vegetables doesn’t become a chore. If you’re successful (and if you buy Niki’s book, you certainly will be!) then you can always increase the area and grow more the following year.
