Using a plant palette that includes fruit trees, berries, vegetables, herbs, edible flowers, cutting flowers, and unusual foliage, Leslie Bennett shares how to create beautiful and productive outdoor spaces. Join the discussion on how to grow food and flowers beautifully at home, design dedicated kitchen and cutting flower gardens, and utilize perennial, edible and ornamental plants throughout your landscape for year-round beauty and harvest.
