I recently attended an "open garden" in the suburbs of Johannesburg, where a wonderful herb and vegetable garden was incorporated as part of the "normal" flower garden - i.e. onions, cabbages, artichokes and others growing amidst poppies, nasturtiums, roses and annuals!!! It was truly fascinating as seldom does one come across a wonderful mix of the two, living and growing side by side.... These pictures are of some of the vegetables and fruits that are currently growing.
Onion flower (yep! bet you didn't know they're this pretty?!)
