To the beginning


She has beautiful flowers - white, red, purple, and fruits - white, green, yellow, purple, and leaves. There are both curly and bush forms. Recommended varieties: Golden Nectar, Butter King, Purple Queen, Foie Gras, Champion, Chef.



Its rather large glossy dark green leaves with burgundy petioles and veins are very beautiful and are used for food, for example, for making botvinia. This will appeal to zealous gardeners - both tops and roots will go into action. Recommended hybrids and varieties: F1 Bon-Bon, Bordeaux, Mona, Pablo, Cylinder. By the way, chard, which is sometimes found in vegetable gardens, is a type of beet with a reduced root crop and petioles enlarged as a result of selection. He also fits perfectly into a decorative garden.


Zucchini and zucchini

They have both powerful leaves and large yellow flowers and fruits of various colors: white - in varieties Beloplodny, Polar Bear, Gribovskie 37, yellow - in varieties Yellow, F1 Pasta Italiana, Anchor, various shades of green - in varieties Aeronaut, Negritenok, Tsukesha, Black handsome. In the varieties Zebra and Kuand, the fruits are vaguely reminiscent of watermelons in color - in light and dark green stripes. But the fruits of the F1 Festival hybrid can be easily confused with a decorative pumpkin - they are round, 10-15 cm in diameter, with white, orange-yellow, green spots and delicate tasty pulp.


They are undeservedly little grown in vegetable gardens. It's a pity. Their disc-shaped fruits with wavy edges resembling flying saucers are beautiful, tasty and healthy. Their color, as a rule, is white - varieties White 13, Disk, Umbrella, Piglet, yellow-fruited varieties are much less common - Solnyshko, Fuete and green-fruited varieties - Gosha, Kolobok, Chunga-Changa. The Bingo-Bongo variety has purple fruits.


Pumpkin fruits are one of the symbols of autumn. Well, if they are as bright as those of varieties and hybrids Winter Sweet, Sweetie, Orange Bush, F1 Hazelnut, Russian Woman, Russian size (weighing up to 150 kg!), Titan is a double holiday.


The variety Goose in apples is a very apt name: each fruit has a rounded body, a curved neck, and a head with a beak. One catch is the color: green with white spots. So what if there are no such geese, green geese look quite harmonious in a decorative garden.


Striped green balls of watermelons in the beds in the middle lane and in the more northern regions are still exotic. But especially for our conditions, breeders have developed a number of varieties and hybrids that have time to mature and gain sugar content: Ogonyok, F1 Gift to the North, F1 Charleston near Moscow, Sugar baby, Ultra early. The fruits of the Gift of the Sun variety have a bright yellow color with subtle stripes of a more intense color, the flesh is typical, red. So the riddle "The very scarlet, sugar, green caftan, velvet" is not entirely about him.


They also look exotic in the middle lane. Thanks to the breeders, thanks to which golden oval or round fruits with aromatic pulp can ripen in our plots. Recommended varieties and hybrids: Pineapple, Zolotistaya, F1 Cinderella, Cappuccino, Kolkhoznitsa, Lada, F1 North Star.

Ornamental cabbage
Ornamental cabbage


Leafy and head, with light green, purple or two-colored foliage - they already look decorative in themselves. And when several varieties are placed together or in the neighborhood with other vegetable or ornamental plants, a real extravaganza is obtained. Recommended varieties: green - Arctic, Delightful, Amazing, Emerald lace NK, Kucheryavets Odessa, Summer hit, Mama mia, Sprinter; with purple hues - Dolce Vita, Lollo Rossa, Parliament, NK Ruby Lace, Uno Momento, Chao Bambino, Miracle of the Four Seasons.

Onion and garlic

The taste and smell of the leaves in different types and varieties of onions are almost the same. But the size of the plants, the shape of the leaves, the size and color of the inflorescences are different. Recommended species: edible - onion, chives, batun, leek, wild garlic, slug, shallots, chives, multi-tiered; decorative - giant, Molya, Ostrovsky, blue, karatavsky and others. Garlic is a type of onion (Allium sativum) and can also be grown in ornamental gardens.

Rhubarb and horseradish

These giants with burdock leaves are good singly or in small groups. Their rich green glossy foliage gives the compositions monumentality and volume.

Artichoke and asparagus

Before the October Revolution, this couple could often be found in manor gardens. Later they became a symbol of the gastronomy of bourgeois countries. The artichoke has good and large silvery pubescent leaves, and large apical inflorescences-baskets (however, they are used for food not yet opened). Asparagus is eaten with young shoots (bleached or not). By the summer, openwork bushes up to 2 m high grow from them, on which small yellow flowers are formed. And on female specimens, elegant rounded reddish-orange fruits develop as a bonus to autumn.

Green crops

Dill, parsley (common and curly), celery, sorrel, mustard, cilantro (coriander), perilla, parsnip, borage (aka borage or cucumber herb), spinach are all great for neutral green spots. Numerous shades of green, different heights of bushes, various shapes and textures of leaves give room for imagination even within this color alone.

The group of green crops also includes the vegetable chrysanthemum, or crowned chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum coronarium), which has long been used in the cooking of the countries of Southeast Asia. You can simultaneously enjoy the taste of its young leaves in salads and admire the beautiful chamomile flowers. However, only decorative chrysanthemums can be sown in other sectors (German flag, Bride's dress, Round dance).

Spicy aromatic herbs

Hyssop, lovage, catnip, anise, numerous species of mint, oregano, marjoram, lemon grass (lemongrass), savory, lavender, thyme, wormwood, fennel … You can't remember all of them at once. Tall and low, green and with silvery foliage, beautifully flowering and with inconspicuous flowers - so different, but united into one group due to their aroma, however, also very diverse. These herbs will not only bring a Mediterranean flavor to your garden, but also delight gourmets.

Basil varieties (which only their names are worth - Anise aroma, Clove aroma, Lemon aroma, Thai queen) leaves can be not only green, but also purple (Yerevan, Osmin).

In various types of sage, or salvia (Salvia) - medicinal, meadow, nutmeg, mealy, rejected, lush - with its varieties Blue and Pink Queen, Horminum and others - first of all, decorative inflorescences (blue-purple, pink-raspberry, white). Salvia brilliant (Salvia splendens) - the star of urban flower gardens - in recent years, in addition to its classic bright red color - varieties Comet, Russian size - has acquired avant-garde yellow, orange, burgundy, purple, white shades - varieties Parade, Sangria.


Even the most common field cereals - wheat (winter or spring), rye, barley - will fit well into your ornamental garden if they are sown in a separate sector and surrounded by suitable neighbors. What can we say about the barley traditionally used for decorative purposes, the mane, pinnacle, hare tail, breeze, or shaker.


This fruit and berry beauty is good both for its flowers and fruits. In most varieties, they are large or medium, in a smaller part of varieties, on the contrary, they are small, but thereby create the illusion of a real forest shy. The varieties Yellow Miracle, Pleasant surprise and other fruits are not red, but yellow. A genuine delight is caused by pink flowers of strawberries of the varieties World Debut, World Delicacy, F1 C-141, Lipstick, Pink Panda, Red Ruby and others. In some varieties, they are gentle, romantic, in others - bright, perky. The variegated forms of wild strawberry and pineapple are decorative with their leaves throughout the season.

Buttercups-flowers …

Vegetable plants are diverse, but ornamental crops are even more diverse. For an ornamental garden, annuals are best suited, propagated by sowing seeds. They can be placed in a new place every year, using a variety of varieties, including fashionable novelties.

Marigolds, or tagetes

The rich yellow, orange, red-brown colors of rejected and thin-leaved marigolds have acquired a new sound in recent years - almost white inflorescences of F1 Beatles White Moon and F1 Vanilla plants, almost green inflorescences of the F1 Aztec Lime Green hybrid. Recommended varieties and hybrids: Apricot primo, Harlequin, Bolero, F1 Brilliant, Gold medalist, Kalando, Carmen, Red brocade, Mimimix, F1 Orange mood, F1 Russian size, Solar giants, Spray Petite, F1 Enterprise.

Marigolds are not only beautiful, but also useful - they are used in cooking, medicine, and contribute to the destruction of soil nematodes. Fresh or dried tagetes inflorescences in their homeland (Central America) and in some European countries are added as a spice to soups, sauces, stewed vegetable and meat dishes. In Georgia, dried and ground marigold inflorescences are widely distributed under the name of Imeretian saffron.

Calendula, or marigold

Yellow-orange baskets echo with marigold inflorescences. However, new shades have appeared here too - for example, delicate apricot in the Kablun epricot and Pink surprise varieties. Recommended varieties: Patio, Kabluna gold, Russian size, Green heart. Marigolds are also used in medicine and cooking. For example, in England and the United States, their inflorescences are used to flavor soups and stews. You can add dried baskets to herbal teas.


We have already spoken about tall sunflowers, but breeders have created not only giants 3 meters high (variety Russian size), but also miniatures not exceeding 50 cm (F1 Junior, Teddy Bear, etc.).


These relatives of marigolds and marigolds are good both in varieties and in mixtures. Their palette is extremely diverse and is especially popular with children. Recommended Blends: Dahlia, California Giants, Carousel, F1 Compact, F1 Magellan, Peppermint Styx, Persian Carpet, F1 Rose Starlight, Russian Size, F1 Sizzle Swizzle, Fantasy.


In recent years, new shades have been added to the traditional yellow, orange and red petals - pink, peach, cherry, burgundy. The leaves and flowers of nasturtium are edible and have a refreshing, moderately pungent flavor, which is why they are added to salads. Flowers are a great edible decoration for a variety of cold snacks. Young green fruits are pickled and used as capers. Recommended varieties and mixtures: Alaska (variegated leaves), Ladybug, Cherry rose, King Theodore, Terry mix, Honeymoon, Night & Day, Peach Melba, Tutti-Frutti (variegated leaves), Bright flowerbed.


Large-flowered purslane (Portulaca grandiflora) is a beautiful creeping plant with numerous thick subulate leaves and variably colored bright flowers (simple, semi-double, double). Typically used in mixes (eg Pun).

The closest relative of this species is the garden purslane (Portulaca oleracea). Its flowers are small, yellow, but the leaves are large, fleshy, they are added to salads, soups and other dishes.


In fact, it used to be grown only as a houseplant. But practice has shown that it is good not only at home and on the balcony, but also in city flower gardens and at dachas. Its main advantage is not flowers, but leaves - green, white, red, burgundy, purple, chocolate, with spots, strokes, strokes, border or without them. Recommended varieties: Wizard series, Dragon Black, Russian size.


Unfortunately, in Russia, growing any poppies is prohibited by law (paradoxically, stupid, but true). Their close relatives come to the rescue, for example, the Californian escholzia. If you want to bring a little romanticism to the site - sow the varieties Apple Blossom and Madame Clicquot. Looking for bright colors - use a mixture of Chiffon and Sparkling carpet.

Many other ornamental plants are suitable for decorating your ornamental garden - alissum, kosmeya, verbena, yarrow, annual asters, celosia, nigella, iberis, sweet peas, levkoy, aquilegia (catchment), petunias, lupins, rudbeckia, annual dahlias, or minions, ageratum … The list can be continued almost indefinitely.

Also, in the composition of the decorative garden, you can include small forms in the country style - carts, wooden wheels, wattle fence, scarecrow, baskets, barrels, clay jugs, figurines and much more.

Imagine, experiment, dare and you will definitely succeed …
