Interesting, though I don't know much about growing flowers

When I started my garden this spring, along with planting the veggies, flowers were always in the plan! What a great way to attract beneficial insects and add more colour to the garden. Next year's garden plan includes even more flowers, mostly in moveable containers to allow the veggie plants to spread.

Thank you, Darrell, for the tip on the marigolds. I think I may find some to plant with my tomatoes...
Since I learned that flowers can be eaten, I have begun to think of planting them. I hope to keep everything edible in my garden while companion planting and such...

I tried planting marigolds with my tomato plants this year as a pest deterrent as I've read that the marigolds help repel aphids and nematodes. I didn't have problems with either pest so I'll try it again next year. My two year old daughter loves to pick flowers so I'll probably incorporate a greater variety next season with the hope that it will help build her interest in gardening.

I haven't got to the point of mixing flowers and garden just yet. I've thought about it. I do have fairly nice flower beds with lots of spring flowers and perrenials that take over for the summer. My flower beds are mostly in the shade so I am limited with what I can grow there.

Have a great flowering day.
