Edible Landscaping

Edible landscaping is the creative union of practical food producing plants with sustainable visually pleasing landscape design.

In addition to herbs and vegetables there exists a wide array of other food-producing plants the Maritime gardener can enjoy. You can choose from one of the dozens of hardy varieties of:

Blackberries Raspberries Currents
Apples Elderberries Pears
Gooseberries Plums Blueberries
Cherry Grapes Serviceberries
Kiwi Fruit Strawberries Rhubarb

And it’s not all about the fruit and veggies, add some edible flowers like chive blossoms, calendula, cilantro or nasturtiums, they are all delicious.

Using edible plants rather than common ornamentals enhances bio diversity providing both food and habitat for beneficial insects and birds.

And, of course, there is the wonderful and healthy food just steps away from your door.
