Your Edible Landscape

This week we're featuring an oldie-but-goodie. Designing and Maintaining Your Edible Landscape Naturally, by Robert Kourik, was first published in 1986, but as edible gardening is enjoying a steady uptick in interest, this book should be finding renewed popularity as well! It's an excellent manual for designing and maintaining a garden that incorporates both ornamental and edible trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. At 400 pages, this book covers every issue that may arise in your garden! Kourik offers only organic methods—a must when you're planting edible plants shoulder-to-shoulder with, for instance, roses—and he dispels many myths, too. The book includes a foreword by Rosalind Creasy, well known for her own edible/ornamental garden. Shop for Designing and Maintaining Your Edible Landscape Naturally.
