Staff Pick

Originally published in 1982 as The Complete Book of Edible Landscaping, Rosalind Creasy's revolutionary book went on to win several awards before its out-of-print status transformed it into a highly sought-after collectible. With five chapters devoted to design, an up-to-date source and resource directory, and an "Encyclopedia of Edibles" that could easily constitute a book in itself, this thoroughly researched and lavishly illustrated new edition will inspire a new generation of gardeners to think outside the raised bed and incorporate edibles into every aspect of the landscape.

Book News Annotation:

Gardeners interested in landscaping with edibles will enjoy this beautiful update to the popular guide originally published in 1982. Rows of impossibly perfect grey green cabbages line brick paths, nasturtiums trail from window boxes, and heads of dayglow-green butter lettuce mingle with bright pink tulips in the high quality photographs found on nearly every page. Creasy, a landscape designer and the author of 18 books, is primarily concerned with design, however appendices supply basic gardening information as well as lists of resources. Landscape designs emphasizing fruits, nuts, vegetables, herbs, and berries are discussed and a large chunk of the book is devoted to an encyclopedia of edibles providing growing information, plant specifications, sources, and suggestions for use, for over 100 different plants. This is an excellent resource for gardeners of all levels. Distributed by Counterpoint Press. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Since Rosalind Creasy popularized the concept of landscaping with edibles a quarter-century ago, interest in eating healthy, fresh, locally grown foods has swept across the nation. More and more Americans are looking to grow clean, delicious produce at home, saving money and natural resources at the same time. And food plants have been freed from the backyard, gracing the finest landscapes—even the White House grounds!

Creasys expertise on edibles and how to incorporate them in beautifully designed outdoor environments was first showcased in the original edition of Edible Landscaping (Sierra Club Books, 1982), hailed by gardeners everywhere as a groundbreaking classic. Now this highly anticipated new edition presents the latest design and how-to information in a glorious full-color format, featuring more than 300 inspiring photographs.

Drawing on the authors decades of research and experience, the book presents everything you need to know to create an inviting home landscape that will yield mouthwatering vegetables, fruits, nuts, and berries. The comprehensive Encyclopedia of Edibles—a book in itself—provides horticultural information, culinary uses, sources, and recommended varieties; and appendices cover the basics of planting and maintenance, and of controlling pests and diseases using organic and environmentally friendly practices.
