I did edible landscaping this year but not in a big way. I let the black raspberries take over the garden along my back fence. They were so pretty this spring while in bloom and bushed out nicely. Hides the neighbors view behind me which was also nice. Then I planted basil and green onions along the outside edge of my rose bush beds and Sugar peas along my porch. They have the prettiest purple blooms and are trailing up the lattice at the bottom. I also added pepper plants to the flower beds. If it goes well this year I am going to add more edibles. So far the only flowers I have are my roses and a bunch of marigolds that I put out to keep the bunnies away.

If anyone is interesting in preserving what you grow (or even what you've purchased), she also has information on canning.

Sounds like she and I have a lot in common. I'm a penny pincher too and have 6 children at home still, I homeschool, garden with edible landscaping, and I can, etc.

Wow, the similarities are uncanny.

Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't seen that section yet. I haven't tried canning or preserving yet either. So many things I want to try!

Congrats TWP and Good Luck!!!

We are planning planting more edible landscaping this coming year as well. I want to put in more fruit trees as well as other things.

I would love to have a more edible landscape, but hubby thinks I am nuts anyways with my little garden in the backyard. We have just enough trees to make the yard too shady to grow too much.

We started incorporating edible landscaping a few years ago with Strawberries lining our raised flower beds. Chamomile now pops up EVERYWHERE but it's so pretty & tough. I love tenacious plants. Hoorah for hardiness. I also really have moved away from "standard" houseplants to herbs & edibles inside too.

The only eatable flower i know of cause i have eaten it is the day lily my grandmother grew them and before the flower bloomed we would pick the green flower bud, bowl it with a little salt in the water and it tasted just like green beans.

There are a whole bunch of edible flowers.


To name a few:

Nasturtiums - have a peppery taste to them and are great in salads

Dandelion bloooms - even the root and leaves are edible

chive blossoms - great addition to salads as well as to make a pretty purplish-pink vinegar with that ends up having a garlic flavor


roses - they can be used to make rose petal jam or even a candy by coating them with egg white and rolling in sugar and allow them to dry


Lavender is also edible - you can not only use them in sachets, bouquets, soap making, etc. but also use dried in Herbs de Provence seasoning and cookies, etc.
