Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the founders of landscape design firm Star Apple Edible & Fine Gardening in the San Francisco Bay Area comes a stylish, beautifully-photographed guide to artfully incorporating organic vegetables, fruits, and herbs into an attractive modern garden design.

While many people would love to have a vegetable garden at home, not everyone has the space or desire to replace their yard with unsightly raised beds and rows of corn. Most people want a balance: the ability to grow organic fruits and vegetables, but also to have their garden be a place of year-round beauty that is appealing and enjoyable. Written by a landscape design team that specializes in blending edibles and ornamentals in the garden, The Beautiful Edible Garden proves that it's possible for gardeners of all levels to reap the best of both worlds. With a fresh approach to garden design, a range of styles applicable to gardening zones across the country, and glorious full-color photographs, it's perfect for readers who want a garden space that is both good-looking and productive.

Review:

"Bennett and Bittner specialize in blending herbs and edibles with ornamentals in limited yard space with an eye toward sophisticated design. Aided by 200 color photos by David Fenton and Jill Rizzo, the authors, who live in California (and it shows in plant selection), offer guided steps and insights for putting together an edible garden that sings with beauty. A mushroom centerpiece, a fruit and nut orchard, and a plum wreath are among the book's innovative offerings. The authors take readers through the process of planning, preparing, and planting with lucid and accessible instruction that includes the principles of landscape design. Even so, don't be fooled by the step-by-step approach. The book is detailed and thorough, and requires thought to assimilate its valuable information. Best first to read it carefully, front to back. Then take it in hand, grab a shovel or spade, and get into the dirt, which, if directions are followed, is destined to become your canvas, your masterpiece, and your dinner.
