enjoying the harvest
You can buy trees, shrubs, herbs, and an array of garden plants on this site or pickup directly from our fruit tree and garden nursery. When you buy plants from Edible Landscaping, potted plants will be shipped directly to you, avoiding the shock that can occur from bare root plants. We ship year round and grow our plants naturally without herbicides or harsh chemicals. Many of our plants are florist grade and make great gifts. The live plants you receive from us will be in the absolute best condition of any plants online! If you wish to pick up your order, make a note in the comments field of the order and we'll take off the ship cost when we process the order.
To start looking through the plants that we offer choose one of the links in the green bar at the top of the page. The Buy Plants feature helps you find plants in categories. With the Show All Plants feature you can scroll thru our collection of offerings one by one. We have an advanced search feature which is making use of part of the extensive list of attributes that we have put together for our plants. We hope that these will guide you in making an informed decision about the plants you are interested in. To the beginner, remember, the popular fruits in stores are grown by professionals and will not perform well in a home planting with little or no care. We strive to correct that misconception by offering plants that grow and produce with less care. We are also working to expand the care guides and detailed plant descriptions to provide even more information. Our varieties are selected for your enjoyment and generations to come. We propagate our plants by grafting, budding, seed, divisions, and cuttings. We also represent the finest wholesale nurseries such as Dave Wilson, Briggs, Northwoods, Starks, Hartmanns, Agri-starts, North American Plants, Fall Creek, Spring Meadow and L.E.Cooke. Our stock plant orchard is fun and an education, please visit. All comments, opinions & suggestions on this website are welcome at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and happy planting!
