What's out: Segregated gardens
According to The Nueces County Record Star: Blended Gardens are IN, like the one pictured above from Cottage Living; while Segregated Gardens are OUT.
Plant mint and fragrant thyme varietals in between cracks of stone pathways and grow strawberries for a delightful edible groundcover around trees. Fruit-bearing shrubs and trees provide color, privacy and fruitful bounty mingling among veggies and perennials. Garden centers are reporting an increase in demand for fruit-bearing shrubs like blueberries and raspberries as ornamentals.
