Abundant edible landscaping is possible through the types of plants we grow in a garden and good design, so they flourish.

Here is a list of plants from A-Z, categorized by their common name.

We favour perennial plants for the fact that they usually have multiple uses and function within a garden landscape, and need planting only once. They are listed with (P) so you know what to look for.

Additionally, we promote and sometimes stock annual plants when in season. (A) is the symbol to look for.

Support species are the 'nursing plants' that are inter-planted and or grown first in a garden to improve the health of the other trees or plants. (SS) is the abbreviation.

Landscaping for flavour, medicine and aesthetics is the movement towards self-reliance and a healthy food culture. We are blessed to have a climate which supports a long growing season with plenty of sunshine, ample rain and diversity. Here are just some useful plants that should be in every garden!
