Mixing vegetables into a regular flower bed: Zucchini plants
When I first placed the newly painted children's chair into my flower bed, it was early spring and not much was green or growing up around it. I envisioned some pretty summer flowers eventually surrounding it. However, I soon found that I could maximize my vegetable growing by adding some plants among the bushes. Zucchini plants are just the right plant! Among the holly bushes and burning bush, I have 4 zucchini plants growing. They blend right in and add a nice filler of green. Plus, I already have 3 small zucchini's growing! Who says you need a raised bed or official garden. Plant where you have space!
