Create an Edible Landscape

So much good, productive agricultural land is wasted these days on the cultivation of lawns and shrubs. Beauty and bounty can thrive together if you take the time to design a multifunctional edible landscape.

orange sea berries
Sea berry is one of a number of nutritious berries that will enhance an edible landscape. It is a tall, upright and deciduous shrub with silver foliage. The plant has a graceful weeping form and dramatic, highly nutritious gold berries that make great juices. You need male and female plants for pollination. Perhaps plant sea berry in a hedgerow along a property line with other hardy, edible shrubs, such as elderberries, ‘Nanking’ cherries and highbush cranberries.
