Foodscaping

Foodscaping is the practice of replanting edible plants in a landscape. These plants can accompany us in parks, along paths, promenades or on beaches. They can be as beautiful as hydrangeas or magnolias. Foodscaping shows that edible plants can also be appreciated for their aesthetic qualities. Blooming rhubarb or broad bean flowers can also decorate our gardens in an interesting way. Unlike conventional vegetable gardens, in a food setting garden, fruits and vegetables coexist in one space with typically ornamental plants.

By growing our own vegetables and fruits, we can at least partially obtain food ourselves, reduce its cost and use much less energy. Vegetables and fruit from your own garden are certainly healthier. On your decorative discount, you can plant, among others, the following edible plants: garden rhubarb, wild strawberry, carrot, leaf beet, curly kale, alder leaf, black chokeberry, Kamchatka berry, red currant or sea buckthorn.

Don't you have an idea for a foodscaping garden bed? Check our concepts!
