Session 3: Edible Landscaping
Edible landscaping involves growing food-producing plants in the residential landscape. Edible landscapes incorporate fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers in a way that is both productive and aesthetically interesting. Edible species can be included in any style of gardening and can be combined with ornamental specimens to achieve your landscaping goals. This webinar will focus on the basic concepts of edible landscaping and will discuss plant species for creating your edible landscape.
