Turn good eats into a gorgeous garden! Featuring everything from easy-to-grow annuals to long-fruiting perennials, this encyclopedia of edible plants offers colorful profiles highlighting each plant's ornamental attributes, origins, use as food, and cultivation requirements. A portfolio of garden designs-including a home orchard, American potager, children's garden, container gardens, and school garden-provides inspiration for home and professional gardeners alike. Additional information on organic care and sustainable techniques (slow gardening, permaculture, building soil) completes this hands-on guide.
