about Landscaping With Fruit

Fruit trees, shrubs, and vines are true two-for-one plants. Many varieties are beautiful — well suited to double duty as sources of delicious food and ornamental additions to the home landscape.

"Luscious landscaping," as author Lee Reich calls it, brings fruit-bearing plants to front and back yards everywhere. Spring blossoms, summer and fall fruit, and the year-round presence of the plants themselves bring a special magic to the home landscape. And of course, they provide sweet, nutritious fruit in season.

Landscaping with Fruit is a complete guide to growing temperate-zone fruit, with information on everything from planting and pruning to pest control and harvesting. You'll learn all the basics of landscaping with fruit — analyzing your site and climate, understanding soil and sun, selecting plants, and growing them successfully.
