2009 Top Garden Trends

What's in: Blended gardens
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.

Blending elements like creeping thyme between the patio's pavers offers aesthetically pleasing element to the eye and the fragrance for the olfactory senses. In addition, the thyme is a perfectly useful herb for seasoning any variety of meat, vegetable and pasta dishes.

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.
