Combining food and non-food plants in landscaping is becoming more common in community and municipal gardens. The garden outside the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, for instance, has been redesigned as an edible landscape. In a previous post I said I would report back on progress. Here are some pictures I took there last week.
In the borders outside Chapter are tomatoes, courgettes, runner beans, broad beans, nasturtiums, kale, poppies, purple-sprouting broccoli and an avocado tree. They are both decorative and productive.
