Book Review – Edible Landscaping from Rosalind Creasy
The picture below is from Rosalind Creasy’s latest book, called Edible Landscaping, that our landscape designer let us borrow. Her book has tons of great ideas on how to include edible plants into your garden without it looking so much like a vegetable garden. It also has great resources for seeds, fruit trees, supplies, and equipment. There’s an encyclopedia of edibles section, that I particularly like, that talks about each plant. There’s info on how to buy it, zones, how to grow and harvest, uses in the kitchen and landscape, and an effort scale that the author created to get a better idea of how easy or hard it is to maintain and care for the plant. I found some great plants to incorporate into our design. There’s also lots of illustrations and tons of photos. I think I’m going to have to get one for my library of garden books.
