We will start with the basic elements of landscape design and apply these to a vegetable palette. We will look at how growing requirements for vegetables differ from permanent plantings and how to successfully integrate the two. We will look at bed plantings, raised beds and simple container planting. Participants can expect to become familiar with the most ornamental varieties and where and how to obtain them.
