As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
The Beautiful Edible Garden by Leslie Bennett and Stefani Bittner
This book came out in 2013, and the subtitle is Design a Stylish Outdoor Space Using Vegetables, Fruits, and Herbs.
This book was one of Amazon's Best Garden Books of 2013.
Leslie and Stefani are the founders of the landscape design firm Star Apple Edible & Fine Gardening in the San Francisco Bay Area. This book was their stylish and beautifully-photographed guide to artfully incorporating edibles into an attractive modern garden design.
This modern landscape design duo specializes in artfully blending edibles and ornamentals together. One of my favorite aspects of the book is that Leslie and Stefani also show how to make edible arrangements with clippings from your garden. The team at Star Apple has refined the way they look at edibles in the Landscape, and - no surprise - they focus on beautiful, luxuriant foliage -- and flowers! If your vegetable garden looks wild and straggly or just stresses you out by the end of the season, use Leslie and Stefani’s ideas to make your edible plants as beautiful as they are productive.
This book is 220 pages of garden design for veggies, fruits, and herbs - with oodles of ideas for making edibles an attractive part of your Landscape.
