[Total: 0    Average: 0/5] You must sign in to vote Converting your entire property into a lush, edible landscape can be fun and rewarding. Of course, there may be design challenges to overcome. In this video, I show you some plants that I’ve placed on my small suburban lot in order to feature verdant greenery, while also creating some seclusion and privacy. At least 90% of all plant species on my lot are edible or perhaps medicinal in some way. There are the usual berries and fruit trees, from Goumis to Persimmons. But also things that can be used as herbal medicine like St. John’s Wort and Yarrow. New Jersey Tea, Chamomile and Sweet Woodruff can be used in teas. Some things love full sun. But some fruit bearing plants actually do well in shade, such as Jostaberries, Gooseberries and Currants. If you are serious about digging in, I encourage you to check out some of the books featured in this vid: Lee Reich: – Landscaping with Fruit: https://amzn.to/2lMCSqd – Grow Fruit Naturally: https://amzn.to/2NdBidi – The Pruning Book: https://amzn.to/2tLtuaB Michael Judd: – Edible Landscaping w/ Permaculture Twist: https://amzn.to/2KzBVzA For all of my book reviews: http://albopepper.com/reviews-gardening-books.php Edible landscaping just makes good sense. And as you’ve seen in this video, it certainly melds well with conventional gardening techniques too. On my property I have 3 sub-irrigated (self watering) beds that are used for my annual vegetable production. And there are some nice raised beds too! #EdibleLandscaping #GardenBookReviews #GrowYourOwn #UrbanGardening #AlGracian #Albopepper #FoodForest ================================== Support AlboPepper.com and get some cool garden shirts that I designed myself: https://shop.spreadshirt.com/albopepper/ ================================== Video Rating: / 5

    Love your landscape. Did you grow all the edible bushes, berries and all or you bought them?

    I have been using 22 Gemstones Powder – Nutrients for plants. My peppers are 40% thicker; and spray me when I cut them. Would you be willing to try some and review it?

    What a nice permaculture backyard setup! I wonder how those haskap or honeyberries work out for you, mine aren't doing great in zone 8a with our dry summers. Growth is minimal and the leaves are already turning orange. I think they might actually prefer cool and wet summers. Maybe I should substitute them with thornless blackberries or yet more gooseberry bushes.

  • Wow, this is fantastic! What zone are you in?

    This is so wonderful!! Do you have problems with whiteflies, mites or aphids? If so, how do you control the pests?
    I am inspired to keep trying. Alot if problems with tomatoes though
