The author, a professional landscape designer, provides solid how-to information for planning, executing, and maintaining the ornamental edible landscape, with specific designs for a wide variety of American geographic and climatic regions. Drawing on years of research into the most decorative and flavorful varieties--from the exotic water chestnut to the everpopular apple--she shows how edibles can form the basis for an attractive home landscape or can be integrated with traditional ornamentals. The Complete Book of Edible Landscaping opens the door to a beautiful and productive home environment.
