Rather than separating the plants you grow to eat and the plants you grow for beauty, landscape architect Jennifer Bartley here encourages gardeners to discover the pleasures of incorporating both edibles and ornamentals into their home landscapes. Bartley offers friendly advice on everything from planting radishes in spring and harvesting tomatoes in summer to pruning perennials in winter, as well as seasonal recipes, monthly garden chores, eight sample garden plans, and information on using cut flowers for decoration.
"Bartley uses this book to guide the gardener to incorporate edibles into the ornamental landscape, a very worthwhile endeavor for those with limited gardening space.... A good choice for gardeners to want both beauty and good food from the same garden."—Danville Register and Bee
"It's a book you can't help but tuck with scraps of paper and turned down page corners as you harvest a bumper crop of fine ideas."—Chicago Tribune
