Edible garden ideas: a formal garden

Edible formal garden tended.wordpress.com

How cool is this? An edible garden planted as a formal garden. That spectacular silver plant in the middle is an artichoke. You don’t have to grow artichokes as food, you can grow them as an ornamental plant in any garden because they look amazing. They are easy to grow, fairly drought tolerant, perennials. Put down ant baits or your chokes will be full of ants. If you don’t want to eat them, you can let them flower. The garden is edged with a boxwood hedge.
