Yes I KNOW many gardeners just love their productive gardens. But is growing veggies all we care about these days?

I grow herbs, and I admire those who are prepared to put loads of time, thought and effort into home-grown produce. But I have to admit to getting pretty tired of the one-sidedness of many gardening publications. Surely there’s a place for ornamental plants in our lives?
