Get creative with what you grow and eat!
- Interplant traditional vegetable plants in your garden with a variety of drought-tolerant, aromatic, and useful herbs.
- Plant vegetables and fruit to add color and liveliness to your garden; consider brightly colored Swiss chard or dark colored beet greens.
- Add richness and diversity with non-traditional edible plant parts such as nasturtium and pansy flowers.
- Select ornamental plants for your garden that are attractive, low-maintenance, and well-suited to Delaware, but also have the added benefit of producing food like the edible fruit of paw-paw, blueberry, or serviceberry.
