As the Chelsea Flower Show gets under way, we reveal one of the top trends from members of the Society of Garden Designers – edible gardens.
Evident in gardens large and small this year is a trend for incorporating edibles into floral displays. Tom Massey uses herbs, cleverly displayed on a planted-up building block wall, and exotic fruit trees – including lemons, a pomegranate and a fig – in his Middle Eastern-inspired garden.
Kate Savill and Tamara Bridge use plants that feature as flavourings in Warner Edwards Gin including rhubarb and juniper and Tony Woods MSGD features a living wall of edible flowers, herbs, salad and soft fruit (top image).
