In this complete reference to integrating edible plants into a wide range of private and public landscapes, landscape designer Cheryl Beesley thoroughly answers the questions of how to plant, where to plant and what to plant.
She covers garden layout, bed construction and fencing options, and she offers specific design examples for a wide variety of possibilities for edible landscapes (such as a schoolyard, restaurant or residence). She presents an extensive pallet of edible plant choices for Texas arranged by trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals, and she includes detailed information about plant families as well as individual plants. Appendixes instruct readers on disease and insect control, additional variety selections, and plant and seed sources.
Long relegated to their own plots and often hidden from view, vegetables and fruits—can become beautiful and practical additions to the ornamental landscape … and this book shows you how!
