Ornamental Crops for Edible Landscapes –
as fall approaches, it’s time to plan ahead for perennial plantings. Edible landscaping combines crops you eat with landscaping you love. Perennial crops last for longer than one season and can enhance a landscape for years to come. They also require less water and maintenance than annual crops. Fall and winter (in warm-winter climates) are the best time to plant perennial crops. Take the summer to amend the soil and prepare spots in your landscaping for edible perennials. Then when the weather cools down, plant long-lasting crops like artichokes, tree kale, Swiss chard, lovage, as well as perennial herbs like chives, oregano, thyme, and sages. Rhubarb, sorrel and lemon grass can fill in a space between shrubs. Crops like sweet potatoes and wild arugula die back but return year after year with very little effort. Just keep after them to prevent them from spreading out of bounds. Strawberries, blueberries and cane berries like black- and raspberries look great in spring and summer, then wane in fall and winter. Passionfruit can climb a trellis for year-round foliage in frost-free areas. Work less and enjoy perennial crops in your landscaping this fall. Find more perennial crops to plant here.
