Lets add a couple of plants that fit right in with a kitchen theme. Not only will you be adding color in your kitchen, but the fruit from these kitchen table plants could actually be used in cooking.
When decorating any kitchen area its always best to stick to a certain theme. This principle also has to do with the type of plants you grow in your kitchen. I like using flowering and fruiting trees to add more color, these plants can still be evergreen. Best use of these plants is as a kitchen table centerpiece, or on a book case where you keep your recipe books. Most bonsai trees will not fit on a window ledge because they are normally too narrow, you would need about a 6 inch ledge.
