Edible Landscaping Plants
LIVING IN THE Suburbs and Cities can present some challenges when it comes growing good, clean, organic Food. Edible Landscaping and Foodscaping provides an opportunity to grow quality food while maintaining the beauty of your landscaped yard. Start with a basic floorplan of your garden space. Make a list of produce you enjoy eating and often eat. Research colorful alternatives for the foods you enjoy and edible alternatives for your existing decorative plants (See the example at the above exchanging Zucchini Plant or Rhubarb or even Kalo (in temperate regions) instead of Elephant Ear). The books below can provide many useful ideas for planning your Foodscape. They also provide basic instruction for optimizing your growing space.
