Elegant vegetable gardens With outdoor space such a precious commodity these days, many contemporary kitchen gardeners prefer their vege plots to be as much about good looks as good food. This trend will continue into 2016 with stylish raised beds, potager gardens, beautiful obelisks and neat rows of coloured beets, bright red chilli bushes or pink flowering chives the order of the day. Clipped hedges of box, corokia or coprosma sharpen up the look even more.

Growing edibles is one of the hottest gardening trends for 2015, but it is slowly becoming a necessity. Vegetable gardens are the easiest and cheapest way to healthy, safe veggies. You have probably thought about starting your own vegetable garden and we encourage you to go through with it. It is such a rewarding job as you will enjoy your first harvest in a very short time.
