The visual appeal of the kitchen garden is extremely important. The kitchen garden is not solely concerned with food but also with beauty. In French it’s called a potager (love that word!) - what’s grown in the garden is served at the table.
Small space? Espalier and graft. Apple, pear, fig and other fruit trees are easily espaliered (trained to grow flat against a wall, a trellis or an arrangement of stakes). This espalier provides screening and fresh fruit. Tip: Want more kinds of fruit than youve got space for trees? Select fruit salad trees with multiple varieties grafted onto a single espaliered plant.
