'Edible Landscape': Tips for mixing bounty and beauty

By Mary Beth Breckenridge
Akron Beacon Journal
It used to be that vegetable gardens were for vegetables and flower gardens were for flowers.
Not anymore.
Mixing edible and ornamental plants is a growing trend in landscape design. Emily Tepe introduces readers to the concept in "The Edible Landscape: Creating a Beautiful and Bountiful Garden With Vegetables, Fruits and Flowers."
Tepe, a fruit researcher and artist, combines her talents to help readers create gardens that are both attractive and practical. She focuses largely on plants that can be grown in the cooler Northern states. While the book doesn't claim to be a complete gardening guide, it does have basic information on such topics as seed-starting, light requirements and crop rotation.
"The Edible Landscape" is published by Voyageur Press and sells for $24.99 in softcover.
