Edible Ornamantals

These days the design focus in the garden has changed so much that we no longer purchase ornamentals for the garden. Everything coming into the garden now is edible (the exception being the "fairy walk" I am developing for future grandchildren). It is still possible to have formality and pretty borders though.
These garlic chives have been a lovely lush green grassy edge that we have regularly raided for colour and flavour, especially for our egg dishes and home grown potatoes. Just look how pretty they are now with their pretty delicate white flowers. Graceful enough for any formal bed and very, very low maintenance. Of course a packet of seed for these is very inexpensive too.
