Permaculture, a portmanteau of “permanent agriculture,” is a method of gardening that enables plants to take care of each other and of the garden as a whole.

In a permaculture garden, each plant has a specific purpose. Some plants are used exclusively for food. Others are planted for medicine. Some plants are even used to attract beneficial insects, while others deter pests.

There are also plants grown to improve soil health and those grown only to decorate the garden. It is this emphasis on plant diversity that distinguishes a permaculture garden from your average garden.

Therefore, you won’t just find vegetable crops and herbs in a permaculture garden. If you’re interested to start your own, then you’d have to plant shrubs and trees as well.
