From the Publisher;


Since Rosalind Creasy popularized the concept of landscaping with edibles a
quarter-century ago, interest in eating healthy, fresh, locally grown foods has
swept across the nation. More and more Americans are looking to grow clean,
delicious produce at home, saving money and natural resources at the same time.
And food plants have been freed from the backyard, gracing the finest
landscapes—even the White House grounds!


Creasy’s expertise on edibles and how to incorporate them in beautifully
designed outdoor environments was first showcased in the original edition of
Edible Landscaping
(Sierra Club Books, 1982), hailed by gardeners everywhere
as a groundbreaking classic. Now this highly anticipated new edition presents
the latest design and how-to information in a glorious full-color format,
featuring more than 300 inspiring photographs.


Drawing on the author’s decades of research and experience, the book presents
everything you need to know to create an inviting home landscape that will yield
mouthwatering vegetables, fruits, nuts, and berries. The comprehensive
Encyclopedia of Edibles
—a book in itself—provides horticultural information,
culinary uses, sources, and recommended varieties; and appendices cover the
basics of planting and maintenance, and of controlling pests and diseases using
organic and environmentally friendly practices.
