Niki’s book: http://goo.gl/jeehfz
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 has. She is bringing in an 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”. To get you even more interested, Rachel will go through the details about the fruit producing modern courtyard she designed that is in Niki’s book!
They will discuss how much a lot of people are interested in a fruit and vegetable producing garden. Another interesting topic you will also learn about is the Cocktail Garden plants where 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. They will also talk about pollinators and wildlife, 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 advise is for people who are starting to build their own gardens and suggestions on vegetables and herbs you can mix in your garden plants.
