With busy schedules and jam-packed gardens, plants have to do double duty if they’re going to fit into modern lives. We aren’t just growing a vegetable or flower garden anymore. Now gardens have multiple purposes like supporting pollinators, engaging children in the garden, providing the supplies to create your own beauty products, or decorating your plate with edible flowers and ornamental vegetables.
So why not create a themed garden with plants that do serve that dual purpose?
