Give height to your beds

When you are particularly fond of flowers, you cannot be satisfied with varieties growing a few centimeters above the ground. We want the show to be supported, to be presented to the eyes, whatever the angle and the height at which the gaze will be carried. This is why the plant varieties of different shapes and height are so good when it comes to creating a vibrant massif! At the edge, the carnations flourish, above a few lavenders and even higher up the branches laden with flowers of a shrubby lavatory. This is just one example of how flowers can combine their beauty to produce a whole that appeals to the eye.

J-F. Mahé Finally, do not neglect your vegetable garden which can also be a success in terms of plant marriages. Flowers and vegetables are good companions, we now know that. Still, we can go a step further by playing on the levels and colors. And why not let a few vegetables rise, for the simple pleasure of seeing them go through a complete cycle, to observe their flowering and their rise to seed - as here for these onions - and thus obtain enough to carry out the sowing of the 'Next year ?
