Présentation de l'éditeur

Fruit trees, shrubs, and vines are true two-for-one plants. Many varieties are strikingly beautiful - well suited to doing double duty as delicious sources of sweet, organic fruit and as ornamental additions to the home landscape. Home grown fruit plants also tie in perfectly with the growing locavore movement. It's difficult to find food that's more local than one's own garden. 'Luscious landscaping,' as author Lee Reich calls it, takes fruit-bearing plants off the commercial farm and replants the prettiest and tastiest specimens in suburban and rural yards. Spring blossoms, summer and fall fruit, and the year-round presence of the plants themselves bring a special magic to the home landscape. Pillowy pink blossoms on peach branches or the bright orange fruit of persimmon trees perk up their surroundings with color and drama. Beautiful plants, yes, but these landscaping additions also provide sweet, nutritious fruit. Homegrown, organic varieties bear almost no resemblance to commercially produced fruits, which are bred and selected to withstand shipping and refrigerated storage conditions. It's hard to believe that Alpine strawberries and those grown in California and shipped across the country are even related!

Je suis française et après bien des recherches j'ai acheté ce livre, qui devrait être traduit ! J'ai découvert de nombreux fruits presque inconnus en Europe et je compte bien essayer d'en faire la culture. Le livre est intéressant, bien présenté et pratique à utiliser. Un must !

Video Review 9 mars 2010
Par BeachBrights - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I hope that by doing a video review, I am able to give you better glimpse inside the book. I really enjoyed this book and it's great advice on site planning. This book offers some great design elements and I was excited to start implementing more fruit plants in my garden. Yes, I said this book made me excited. It is really a fun read and an excellent resource.

Only for big gardens? 25 mai 2009
Par J. Blum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Information on fruit growing can be found readily, but books on landscaping with fruit are not that numerous. So it was with eagerness I awaited this one. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in the "landscaping" part. It is OK for big gardens, but virtually useless for those of us with more modest ones. A small section on dwarf varieties etc.. The impression left is that a "luscious landscape" is possible only with lots of land. In fact, the landscaping section is excerpted efficiently in Carleen Madigan's "The Backyard Homestead", which also is a bit more helpful for smaller gardens. Lee Reich's book is strongest when dealing with plant care & individual plant information.

Lots of good ideas, but missing some important information 18 février 2011
Par Silea - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is not intended to be a complete compendium of every edible landscaping plant, but instead focuses on a small variety that the author thinks are particularly noteworthy. Many of them are lovely three or four seasons of the year, provide tasty fruit, and are relatively easy to care for. Reading through it, i discovered a great many plants i'd never heard of that sound quite delicious.

However, the author is relatively unconcerned about invasive species. He even lists blackberries as something to put in your garden, with an offhand mention of pruning to control growth. (Here in the pacific northwest, we don't worry about a zombie apocalypse much, because the blackberry bushes are stronger, faster, meaner, and more virulent than any zombie plague.) At least a few other plants also spread via suckers and underground runners, sometimes quite determinedly, but almost no emphasis is placed on it. A gardener following the recommendations in this book may end up with a property totally overrun by blackberries and maypop because they weren't able to keep up with the plants' precocious growing habits.

My advice to anyone looking to create their own edible landscape is to use this book as a starting point. Get some ideas of which plants sound like you'd like having them around, but then go check other sources. Make sure the plants you want to grow won't run you out of your home in a few seasons, or aren't disease-prone in your area. (For example, i was planning on planting some Juneberry trees until i talked to the people at my local garden center. They told me that i'd spend so much time fighting disease on my Juneberries that even if i managed a harvest, it wouldn't be worth it.)


If you've got your heart set on growing some of the more obscure fruit listed in this book, but can't find reliable information, consider getting another book by the same author: Uncommon Fruits for Every Garden. It has a much smaller selection of fruits, but much more detailed information about each of them.

Reviewing: "Landscaping With Fruit" by Lee Reich 6 juillet 2009
Par Kevin Tipple - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Growing your own vegetables and fruits has come back into favor in the last year thanks to the bad economy. Instead of focusing primarily on beauty in the landscape a lot of folks went in a new direction and began planting with the idea of growing food. As the author notes in the introduction, one can plant fruit producing plants that also provide beauty in the landscape.

After the introduction, the book is essentially divided into two parts though that organization is never expressly stated by the author. The first half of the book is all about the technical details. The second half is all about the various plants. Of course, various plants are discussed and there are photographs of them in the first section, but the overriding material is regarding landscape design and placement of the plants as well as how to maintain them.

The first chapter covers "Landscape Design Basics." As implied by the title, it is how to figure out how one yard looks better that another(and not just because everything is alive and thriving), how to figure out what you have, what you want, how to use different plants to achieve different goals, etc.

"Considerations In Planting" follows with topics on weather, your local soil, types of sunlight in your area, etc.

This leads directly into the chapter titled "Growing The Plants." Spending money and effort on planting is doomed to failure if you don't know what will grow best, how to care for your soil, prune and protect against pests of all types, among other topics.

Various plans for several different layouts are found in the next section titled "Home Landscape Plans." Starting on page 61, you are led through "A Patio Fruitscape," and "A Modular Backyard" and a very neat design for "A Children's Garden" (which also appeals to adults as a retreat) and many others.

Starting on page 73 is the "Guide To Fruiting Landscape Plants." The plants were selected for landscaping in temperate climates which the author interestingly defines as "... having distinct winter and summer seasons." (P.73) After an overview table listing the name of the plant, what it usually produces in terms of quantity, zones it lives in according to USDA and AHS, landscape use, prominent ornamental qualities, ( types of bloom, leaf, color, etc.) among other categories, the book moves into very detailed descriptions of the plants. Along with much of the info listed in the chart being repeated here there are photographs of the plants and plenty of growing tips. Nearly forty plants are listed and include several varieties of cherries, currants, kiwi fruit, pear and others. There are also suggestions for fruit trees in pots using various types of citrus, as well as fig, kumquat, and others.

A list of suppliers, reading resources, zone maps and eleven page index bring this very helpful book to a close.

Despite the photographed lusciousness of many of the plants in the book, which would indicate a heavy need of water, many plants such as the "Russian Olive" ( Pages 162-163) prefer it drier with low humidity. So, while not specific to Texas readers, this book does feature plants that will work here as well as various other places in this country. Be sure to read all the info for each plant so that you can make a good decision as to what fits best in your landscape.

Comprehensive and detailed, 191 page book provides a wealth of good advice in how to incorporate fruit bearing plants your landscape. While it might be trendy among some right now to do so, this book will show you what to do to keep fruit coming from your landscape long after the fad has passed.

Wanted to hear more about the author's garden 5 juin 2011
Par Earthworm Jim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I like this author and have some of his other books. I was hoping that the landscaping part of this book would concentrate more on what he did in his own garden. You see, he is a gardening genius. This gentleman has about 2 acres of land. On about 1/2 of that he managed to plant 40 varieties of gooseberries, 2 dozen varieties of apples/pears, a half dozen varieties of grapes, red currants, white currants, black currants, raspberries, mulberries, strawberries, 20 blueberry bushes, 20 vines of varying hardy kiwifruit, 20 pawpaw trees, chestnuts, filberts, pine nuts, a large vegetable garden, a greenhouse, and also a few ornamentals! He probably has more than this now. This is what I call landscaping! I have seen some pictures of this garden on the author's blog and even though it doesn't meet the aesthetic criteria demanded by some ornamental landscaping enthusiasts, I guarantee it would have edible landscapers drooling.

His book has a few cute landscaping plans by some other author but he talks very minimally about how he planned his own spectacular garden which he calls a "farmden". I think he needs to write another book about "farmdens" so us laymen can learn from this great master.
