Description du produit

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 !

3.0 étoiles sur 5 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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book to get you started with fruiting plants 22 avril 2015
Par Jeff M. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Great book to get you interested in using fruit as part of an edible landscape. If you are already growing vegetables at home and want to invest in fruiting shrubs, vines, trees or groundcovers, this is a good resource. This is the book that got me interested in using fruit in the landscape, and there are a lot of plants he describes that I had never considered. I've since planted blueberry, blackberry, strawberry, and serviceberry, and hope to add some hardy kiwi in the future. He using a rating system that is subjective, but seems to work well. It is helpful in deciding between plants if you have limited space.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Nothing for California or Southwestern Gardeners 25 septembre 2013
Par Marjorie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Nice photos and clear instructions. This looks like a useful book for beginning gardeners or someone designing a landscape for the first time. Unfortunately for me (in Southern California), the specific plants and strategies for planting involve fruit trees and plants for areas with cold, snowy winters.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing book is my go-to resource for my fruit garden 1 avril 2015
Par Lois Field - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
With the rising cost of food, most especially fruits, and having trouble finding organics I will be planting an edible paradise on my property. This book is one of the best I've read on fruit. While not every type of fruit is covered I was introduced to a few varieties I had not heard of before. Where this book is ahead of the others is that it is easy to read, has everything broken down by not only climate but how much you can expect to harvest and the pros and cons of each variety for each plant. Space requirements, how to train or prune and when and how to harvest are all there in nice big print.
