Most of us aren’t planting our gardens outside right now but you can start planning some fun Valentine’s Day inspired plants this year! Adding these 14 Beautiful Pink Veggies and Flowers Create an Enchanting Garden throughout your garden bed to create a magical pop of pink. You can plant them in it’s own section too which will make an enchanting garden that will woo you all season. You can create what you love so use your imagination.

If you have a container garden you can add a focal point for some pops of color. Even if all you have is an herb garden, you can choose colorful herbs to add some color.
What does an enchanted garden mean?
To me it means whatever will draw you outside to nurture your garden. I talk a lot about gardening for food independence and that is very important but your garden should woo you out to it. When you look out the window and you see the beautiful pink veggies and flowers (or blue or purple or whatever you want) you will once again be drawn out there. Maybe you need a variety of colors? Can you imagine walking out into your green space with your morning coffee and smelling fragrant blooms?
The day of LOVE is coming up so in honor of Valentine’s Day lets explore some gorgeous pink veggies and flowers that you can plant this season.
How do you make an enchanted garden? my neighbor inspired me!
My friend and neighbor Beth inspired me in this way. When she found out I started a blog and was as garden nerdy as she was, we became fast friends. She came over and I went to see her garden. We talked seeds and swapped seeds. She talked about how she was growing certain veggies because they were pink and pink makes her happy! Growing something for that purpose had not been a priority ( I was laser focused on growing food) but this attitude of growing what makes you happy resonated. I began to read up on a cottage garden and fairy garden for the kids. Exploring what beautiful flowers I should add to make my little space a magical place became part of the process. I even considered a garden arbor with pink roses. Creating a lush garden for more than one purpose was very exciting.
