Taking you through several seasons, this lesson shows you how to take advantage of small spaces to blend ornamentals and edibles (such as tomatoes and blueberries) and come up with creative solutions for everyday gardening challenges, including color balance, climate restrictions, privacy with neighbors, and pest control.
