Edible Landscaping: Urban Food Gardens That Look Great, by Senga Lindsay: a Review

Edible Landscaping: Urban Food Gardens That Look GreatEdible Landscaping: Urban Food Gardens That Look Great by Senga Lindsay

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


If you are looking for a book to give you examples of different types of areas that can be landscaped for edible purposes, this is a good book. If you are looking for copious example pictures to inspire you, this is not the book you are looking for. If you are looking for a quick run down of various different colored common edibles, this is a good book for you. If you are looking for a long list of edible plants, their growing requirements, and a few edibles one might not think of on their own, this is not the book for you. It's a good starting point with some great ideas for gardening with kids in mind as well as good information you will be able to use when you start planning your garden, but it will have to be a companion book to a more extensive one that deals more with plants than garden form.
