5 Beautiful Plants to adorn your garden and to eat! 1 small packet each of Red Basil, Rainbow Swiss Chard, Matt’s Wild Cherry Tomato, Nasturtium, and Burgundy Okra. We recommend starting your sunflowers outside early, then they can be used as a tomato trellis, with theokra off to one side, and the red basil, and chard in front to make a delicious and beautiful garden. If you wish to eat the sunflower seeds, please net them, otherwise they are a great way to feed the goldfinches. Pick the rainbow swiss chard’s outer leaves often to keep the plants looking their best and provide a steady stream of delicious chard to your kitchen.
