Edible Landscaping: filling containers with edible plants

Edible Landscaping: Swiss Chard and Violas in container


Do you use edibles in your front porch containers? This year I tried a combination of edible flower and vegetable I really like: Swiss Chard and Violas.

Violas are dainty little flowers but are surprisingly capable of standing up to New England summers. I planted Johnny-Jump-Up Viola seedlings into containers in mid May and they are still flowering.

For height in the containers I planted Bright Lights Swiss Chard seeds and now that the plants have achieved maturity, I have the look I wanted: a tall colorful stemmed foliage plant surrounded by a myriad of small flowers.

  22. When doing a landscape project it can be difficult to choose between having a lansing landscaping companies architect doing the design, a landscaping contractor building the project or doing it one's self. Many of the factors to consider include budget, how much money to spend, time, how long will it take to do everything, effort, how much work has to be done. Trees, flowers, shrubs and other plants have to be selected along with materials such as brick, stone, concrete and wood. Additional considerations might be weather, climate, irrigation and drainage. For routine maintenance, landscape contractors can save time doing lawn care, raking and disposing of leaves in fall.
