Hello, and welcome to the Edible Landscapes home page! This site aims to answer questions that are frequently asked by home gardeners in the Midwest about pest management, growing conditions, diseases, etc. (we even have a section that provides recipes for the fruits and berries your plants produce). The information on this website pertains only to plants grown in the midwestern United States, and we’ve focused our attention on the care of blackberries, pears, and cherries. Please feel free to explore our website to answer your midwestern gardening questions and concerns.
