Here’s another unusual idea for growing beneficial plants that are edible as well as looking beautiful – our fave combo! We’ve just designed a bed that will have grains growing in it. Yes, it is possible (and easy) to grow your own grains here in the UK. We are talking quinoa, which we will start to grow and pot on in April, ready for a September harvest. Quinoa, cooked just like rice, tastes good, is rich in lysine, and gives a good nutritional balance to your meal. And as for the rainbow colours – well how lovely are they going to look in a bed mixed with rainbow chard, perhaps surrounded by more statuesque plants like corn or beans!
